Include image within form submission to database

Hi,
I am developing sites for Real Estate using FP2000 and MS Access database using active server pages(.asp). The server is NT with FP extensions including SMTP mail. I create forms to submit info such as street name etc. I would like to have a form where an image of the property can be submitted at the same time as sending the text fields. I have come across various packages which offer to upload images such as AspSmartUpload which seem too complicated to install. The idea is for different users to send details plus photo (probably JPG) from their browsers. I am happy to limit to IE5+ (sorry netscape) if that is necesary.
Can anyone suggest the most efficient way to produce the form to include an image upload (button?) without going to far away from Frontpage itself. Please dont suggest PHP as my eyes will glaze over and I will comatose. I will consider advice on ftp although I need to make sure that the file name (photo name) matches the data record, ie no duplication etc. I'll also appreciate recommendations of easier packages to work with, preferably free, but within an FP2000 environment. The key is ease of use for the user.
For an example of a form to add this funcion to;

or

If you need more information please ask
Thanks

Hi london-
If you're really committed to FP, version 2002 has a File Upload option under Insert/Form. In Form Properties, you specify the location the file is uploaded to. Pretty simple, sounds like (I haven't used it yet myself, I admit). Any chance you can upgrade?
Just a thought-
