I am having trouble making the discussion server work.  First is that I get an error as somebody else did in this site 'front page is not installed'.  I have front page server installed in it and I can access server console from OptionPack 4->IIS->Frontpage Extensions.  I have ver 3.0.2
I dont understand why it does not recognize my discussion request ?

2)  The discussion is a small part of a site and I want it to be accessed thru a frame.  I tried publishing the discussion using the wizard onto this remote server.  I called the main page from a ling on the menu.  It gives access with no problem.  But when I post a messsage, it says successfully ... and does not update the TOC ?  I dont understand why ?  Is it possible to have dis only as a part of my web ?  Can I rename these files/move them into different directoriesetc.  I did this and got into a lot of trouble.  Can anybody suggest a good method to put all my files in one directory.

Thanks

The problem is in your frames.  You will need to manually modify the frameset pages that are generated by FrontPage in the creation of your Discussion group.

FrontPage assumes that it will be able to use the parent frame, but in fact you are already using a different parent frameset.  Therefore, when the Discussion group links try to display the web pages, the target frames are not found.

Easiest solution:
When a visitor decides to use your Discussion Group, have it open in a separate browser window.  You can accomplish this by setting the hyperlink for the Discussion Group to use the "New Window" aka "_blank".  When the user is finished with your discussion group, all they have to do is close the extra window.

Sorry, I forgot to mark this as being an answer.

No I have already renamed the frames.  its fine to start with.  I found that this problem goes away when I installed frontpage ext 2000.  I wonder if this is a bug in 98 extensions.

I am confused.  My answer is correct for FP 98.  If you upgraded to FP 2000 and no longer have a problem, why did you submit the question?
