moahmad...you currently have 18 questions open...several of which I have attempted to assist you on.

Given your current grading history, I am reluctant to assist you yet again.  Please clear up some of your outstanding questions so that I can be assured that you will not abandon this question as you have done others.

Thank You.

The FrontPage server extensions can be obtained at the microsoft site.  They are also on your FP CD in the SERK directory.

Hello moahmad:

In order to keep asking question, moahmad, you must deal with the questions you currently have open.

You will find them here, under "Questions Asked". They will have a status of "locked" or "unlocked".


Thanks for your immediate attention to this matter.

Hello moahmad:

You continue to blatantly disregard the necessity of awarding and cleaning up your old questions. I will leave your recent questions open, but I am force-accepting answers on all of your old ones because you refuse to respond to the requests of ClassyLinks and myself to deal with your questions.

7 or 8 accepted answers of 22 questions is totally out of line. The 7 or 8 accepted tell me that you understand how this system works.

I don't understand why you want to jeopardize your ability to get answers.

Here is the answer but I request that you follow up with and award my reply if it works for you.

Go to your start menu and programs and Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack.  Or Internet Information Server.  Basically
You need to open the Internet Service Manager.  When it opens right click on your web and select either New or All Tasks depending on which one says install server extensions.  Then follow the instructions.  For first timers defaults sufice.

If you have any more questions please comment on this answer.

Hi jd and welcome to EE.

A little bit of on-site ettiquette you should be aware of.  99% of the Experts in here choose to post their answers only as comments.  That way, the question does not become locked and is available for viewing by all experts.

Just a little hint ;-)

BTW - where were you last week when my DELL died???

LOL...once again, welcome...it is good to "see new faces" in here.

article, you should do the following:
 - Ensure that Internet Information Server (IIS) is functioning correctly and
 - Download the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions from the following Microsoft

NOTE: Because the Microsoft Web site is constantly updated, the site address may
change without notice. If this occurs, link to the Microsoft home page at the
following Web site:
The extensions are stored in a self-extracting, self-executing file.
To install the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions for the Microsoft Internet
Information Server, double-click the executable file that you downloaded from
the Microsoft Web site, and follow the prompts. The FrontPage Server Extensions
will be configured for your default Web site only.

1. Click Start, point to Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack, point to Microsoft Internet
  Information Server, and then click Internet Services Manager.
2. Click Console, and then click Add/Remove Snap-In.
3. Click the Extensions tab. The FrontPage Server Extensions check box should be
  selected. If the FrontPage Server Extensions check box is not selected,
  select it.
4. Click OK, and return to the Internet Services Manager main window.
5. Right-click the name of your Web site, select Tasks (or All Tasks), and then
  select Configure Server Extensions. The Server Extensions Configuration
  Wizard opens. Click Next.

  and Browser groups created for you. When you are finished, click Next.
7. Type the name of the user or group that will be the web administrator, and
  then click Next.

  extensions now, reconfigure IIS to use an NTFS partition and then use the
  FrontPage server administrator tool to install the extensions. Are you sure
  that you want to install the extensions?
