IIS / Frontpage server extensions authentication problem

I have a problem with a frontpage server extensions. I am running windows 2003, with IIS. When ever I create a website and install fronpage server extensions, I am unable to administer the website, I keep getting 401 errors.  The account I am using is domain admins. I have tried creating a few websites, and keep getting the same results. I have two servers in my domain, and I get the same problem on both servers. I have tried everything I can think of please help.!!

Thanks
Jim

When you install the Frontpage Extensions, you should have an area where you can create a new user for administering that website. Can you try going through that process again and create a new user. When you connect up to the site in Frontpage, use that user/password that you just created for administering the site. Let me know how that works out.

Are you using a hosting control panel to create your websites (and enable the FP extensions), or are you doing these manually?

I am doing this manually, the server is local to me, it's not co-hosted
