    This depends on the order that your host has set for the primary page. Some use index.htm index.html default.htm etc.. However you can simply look at the name of your old index page and name your new page the same name. You might need to delete your old on. If I had to guess I would say the name of the file should be index.html. If you want us to tell you the exact name post the url to your site.

    Just as I suspected. You have two index files.

    You have to delete the index.html and save your new one as index.html. Sometimes simply deleting index.html might default to your second option index.htm as the home page but not always. You stated you were using frontpage, you should easily be able to delete the index.html in front page.

    Let me know if you need more help.
