You may want to download some shareware FTP programs. Ipswitch, Inc. ( has WSFTP and has Drag and Drop FTP.  These programs allow you to do everything that you seem to want.  And they are very user friendly.

FrontPage can be used just like a FTP....When you start the program the "Getting Started" box should popup...Select the "More webs" button.....Then just type in the IP address and select "list webs".....Your domain should popup in the lower box, either as "" or "<ROOT>" select it and hit OK.....Then you should be prompted for your login and password....Thats it, now you can create pages or delete files, right on your server.....Billbo27
