FrontPage Server Extensions are plugins/modules that get installed on the webserver to support some of the dynamic and data bound features of FrontPage.  FrontPage uses a lot of custom web bots to do some of its dynamic page generation.  The front page extensions need to be installed on your web server for the web bots to work properly on the web.

When you install IIS you have an option to install FP Extensions (you need to select it)  Do an custom install rather than the typical install and the first optio is FP Extensions.  Also when you install FP 98 or 2000 it will ask you if you want to install the FP extensions.

Web Bots: are custom components of FP:
