Problems with NT and Frontpage

We are running NT Server with Option pack 4 and service Pack 5. Our webpage  is running with IIS with Frontpage 2000 extensions installed. Now the problem is everytime i try to edit a webpage with Frontpage 2000 it gives me this error:

Pagename.htm, (SOMEUSER) has this file checked out. Do you want to make a read only copy?

when i hit yes it takes me to the page and puts a lock icon next to the webpage. Now when i try to edit the page ( now i know this isn't going to work cause the page is readonly at this point) and save the work it gives me this error:

Server Error: PageName.htm is checked out by (USER).

So really my problem is i can't save my webpages after i edit them because of these problems. Does anyone have any ideas about what i can do to fix this. i already reinstalled the frontpage extensions.

Sounds like you have given everyone author rights to the files. If within Frontpage you set the permissions for author = yourself and anyone else you wish, Everyone = browse only then I believe that this will cure your problem.

I've posted as an answer but I f I'm wrong please reject immediately.

Server Error: Page index.htm is checked out by IUSER_TELCO_PDC
PDC = Primary Domain Controller???

Turn off document check-out.  This is the simplest solution.

I believe this is under the "Propertires" Snap-In in the IIS Management Console.
yeah...but it's also in FP2000 under the Options menu...
