When you upload the files, I believe that you will lose all session information... From my understanding, these discussion threads must be established in the place that they originated (ie on your machine they will show up, or on the server they will show up --- only where they were created...)

Did you ask your Webmaster to setup a SYSTEM DSN on the server for your discussion thread?  If you didn't, you should do so to have the thread working properly.
If the DSN already exists, then it's FrontPage 98 that's causing the problem.  FrontPage 98 is still not that well designed and needs more fixes.  Like when you create an ASP page locally which is based on a database, once you upload it to the production server, the page does not look the same (either missing database region or duplicated fields).  Your problem should be the same as the above.  So when you are trying to use FrontPage 98's native database functions, try to design the page on the server not on your local machine.
