I was having some problems with FP extensions (2000) running on my netscape server.
I decided to re-install the extensions.
I ran the ./fpsrvadm command to uninstall the extensions.
ran it again to install them and get the error:
cannot open file .nsconfig for read/write

Not too sure what release of FP 2000 you have but here is a link that details the installation of the extensions as well as a link on where to download the extensions (just in case):

should I did a regular "uninstall", should I do a full uninstall of the extensions and start over?

Will this delete the content of my web?

Yes - do a full uninstall of the extensions.  No, it will not delete your web.

I did a full uninstall using fpsrvadm
manually removed the .nsconfig files
ran fp_install.sh
get the same error and the same .nsconfig files come back
;(

should I delete the whole frontpage directory and all of the _vti files?

Well if you delete the while front page directory - you will delete your web site if I am understanding your question properly.  


When you re-installed the extensions, did you follow this site: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;215481 - also have you considered downloading the from the MS site just to make sure you have the most current program?

Yes. I downloaded the tar file, fp_install.sh and followed the site.

my web content is in
../docs directory.
I want to know if I can/should delete all of the frontpage files within this directory. the ones that start with _vti etc. I thought doing a full uninstall would get rid of these files.

And also delete the frontpage directory that is in /usr/local

It appears that when I run the fp_install.sh it will create it again because it checks to see if it exists and asked if I wanted to overwrite and I said yes.

the weird thing is: I manually remove the .nsconfig files
within the ../doc directory and when I run the install (using the script or fpsrvadm) they come back.

Have you tried also going into Frontpage & go to Tools - Recalculate Hyperlinks.  This is what actually creates those _vta files - not frontpage extensions.  I do not think that should have an affect, but you never know.
