Frontpage Extensions

In Frontpage2000 when I select a web page that I have full rights to modify and attempt to open it within IE5, I am getting a Server error: Cannot open file "W:\Inetpub\wwwroot\dsmnt\_vti_pvt\service.lck.  I know this error has something to do with the frontpage server extensions and I've given everyone full access to write to the darn file, but I can't get rid of the error and open the web page.  Could this have something to do with a corrupt server extensions on the web server?  Please help me figure out this error.  Thanks.

Delete the service.lck file. Sometimes it is left behind when someone loses their connection to the server.

   I appreciate the attempt.  I tried that, but I received another error indicating that there was no service.lck file to write to!  I continued to think about it and discovered that there is a new server extensions download for Frontpage2000.  I downloaded it and installed it on the web server and on my own system for kicks and everything worked fine!  Thanks for responding, though.
