my website is hosted by angelfire.com, and i just switched to dreamweaver from frontpage which i found to be extremely limiting...however frontpage let me work with my webfolder without any problem, i would just open fp and it would ask me for my login/pw for my webfolder and i was up and running...please let me know what dialogue box to open in dw and how to input all of the necessary information, such as the url, the login and password, and the rest of that....just to be clear, how do i work with a webfolder in dw?

You need to set up your Site in the "define sites" dialog in dreamweaver. Its pretty self explanatory. Go to Site>Define Sites and hit "New"....

Thats right weed.

When you fill in the new details, go to remote infor, fill in the FTP  host (ftp.angelfire.com) your login and password, and hit ok.

When you use the connect button on the site window (Hit F8 if you cant see it) your angelfire site will appear in the left window.
