Yes
You would have to make "x:\archive\1987" a Subweb under http://companyweb/Archived
Let me know if you need more help.

vico1,

Thanks, i guess i do need more help.  From Frontpage I have been using the wizard to try and create a subsite to presnet the desired directory but am not being succesful.  Can you please provide a little detailed instructions for creating  asubsite in this scenario?

You could do it From IIS.
your server publishing rules are probably not set.

Quick workaround:

Go to server Management
Expand Advance Management
Expand Internet Information Service
Expand Your Server
Expand websites
Right click on Companyweb then click on New
Select Virtual directory
type an Alias name like "Archive87" or what ever you want to call it
click next
then browse to "x:\archive\1987"
Give it the desired permission
then click finish
That should do it
Good luck!
