Error 404 page with Frontpage on Linux (there has to be a way)?

As a search engine expert, I'm often asked to come in to help with Frontpage sites.  I know it's lame, but one of the things that I need (desperately) is to find out how to set up Error 404 pages for use with Frontpage when the user is using Shared Hosting on Linux.   Dedicated hosts are no problem, of course, but with Frontpage taking over .htaccess on Linux, it's not so simple.  This is the single largest problem I've yet encountered with Frontpage and it seems so, er, ridiculous.

There must be a way to set up a 404 page not found landing page when using FP 2002 extensions on Linux.  

Can I alter the .htaccess file without worrying about Frontpage removing my alterations?

Anyone have success doing *anything* to accomplish this (seemingly simple) goal.

Thanks!

I have still not been able to resolve this issue - I know it's a tough one.   Many of us would love to find a way.  Microsoft not allowing a built-in 404 handling is a *huge* problem.
