FP discussion forum posts created but not listed

Hello,

I've created a discussion forum with FrontPage 2002, running on XP Pro, IIS 5.1, with FPSE installed.

When a user posts something to the forum, the associated posting page is created, but the Table of Contents is not updated, nor does the TOC list anything being there.  After the user presses the submit button, I get an error from http://justinc/_vti_bin/shtml.dll/RMDisc1_post.htm?33 saying that the page cannot be found.
When I go into the _Disc dir, I can see the files created by the posts.

I have created many disc forums before, but I don't understand why this one isn't working.  I've thought about uninstalling the Server Ext., but it seems to be a setting somewhere as other things tied to FPSE work.  I created the forum using the wizard, and have yet to tweak anything manually (no extra mailing, form changes, etc).

Not sure where to start looking as everything I've checked so far seems to be fine.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Once the 'Post Article' button is pressed, the browser tries to open
http://localhost/_vti_bin/shtml.dll/RMDisc1_post.htm
After that, I get a browser error saying that the page cannot be displayed.

Again, I've built these before and have never come across this issue.
It is a new installation of IIS, but I've checked everything I can think of in there...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Are you using an ASP page to post?

When an ASP page is requested on a server, Asp.dll parses it. It finds any script specified to run on the server, executes it, and displays the results.

When you conduct a search using the Search Form, Shtml.dll parses the search page and the results of the search are expanded into the search file and displayed in your Web browser.

When a search is performed using the Search Form on an ASP page, Shtml.dll cannot parse the file because Asp.dll is already parsing it.

I found the problem...Uncle Bill.
I assumed that the server extensions listed were the right version...nope.
After installing FPSE 2002, everything perked up and worked!
If I was using ASP, I could definitely understand what you're thinking, thanks for trying, and please excuse my trust in Uncle Bill.

I guess I also should have mentioned that I'm used to running on Apache, and not IIS.
Thanks again!
