HTTP Error 405

I'm trying to get a FrontPage form to produce an html page. I've used the FrontPage Wizard to do this. I then load my FrontPage web onto our company web server. I get an http error 405 when I try to submit the form telling me "the method specified in the Request Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the request. Please ensure that you have the proper MIME type set up for the resource you are requesting. Please contact the server's administrator if this problem persists." Our server adminstrator assured me that the Frontpage server extensions are loaded on our NT server running IIS. Please help.

did it work ?
Somewhere in the HTML code you have put a <FORM METHOD="post">...</FORM> tag, in this tag you need to place at least one <INPUT> tag, or use the METHOD="get" in your form header

Everytime I opened the html source and tried to change the 'form method = get' in the form header, FrontPage changed it back to 'form method = post'. I created this 'scrolling text box' form step by step using the FrontPage form wizard.

I'm using FrontPage 1.0 for the Mac. I created a Frontpage personal web and created a page and put this form on it. I then copied this web to a NT server running IIS and got the aforementioned error message when I previewed this page in a browser and tried to put text in the form and submit to create a html page.

I've been told the server has the FrontPage extensions but I don't have access to the server to check this. Could there be a problem with the FrontPage server extensions?

I really appreciate your help concerning this.
