    FPSE is an option you can install when you install IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003 Server.  If you didn't install then, you still can now.  Go to 'Control Panel' -> 'Add/Remove Programs' -> 'Add/Remove Windows Components'.  In the 'Windows Components' window, highlight 'Application Server' and press the 'Details' button.  In the 'Application Server' window, highlight 'Internet Information Services' and press the 'Details' button.  In the 'Internet Information Services' window, make sure the 'FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions' box is checked.  If you also have to install ASP, highlight 'World Wide Web Service' and press the 'Details' button.  In the 'World Wide Web Service' window, make sure the 'Active Server Pages' box is checked.  Click 'OK' to begin installing.

    These step-by-step instructions are available with screen captures/graphics at (as part of a Windows 2003/IIS 6.0 tutorial).

    The above instructions are actually for the *installation* of FPSE....

    To *enable* FPSE on a Windows 2003 IIS Server you need to go into the Web Service Extensions in the IIS Manager, highlight FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 and then click on the 'Allow' button on the left hand side of the window.
