How to create a directory listing of hyperlinks to MP3 files in a web folder

I want to be able to paste a number of MP3 files into a folder at my website and make a directory listing, with hyperlinks to each file, available to a browsing user.

Obviously, I can create a page and manually add each link (which is what I do now) but I wonder if there is a way to automate it.
I vaguely remember being able to do this back circa 1996 when I used to create webpages by writing  HTML line by line in a text editor.

I play in a band and, in between weekly practice, we exchange demos and cover ideas via a webpage.

I'm not sure what system they are using, but the ISP is www.meganet,net.

Is there a way to check the type of server from within Frontpage?
yea do this


make a file called test.asp
with this code in it

<%@Language = "VBScript"%>
<%
Response.write = "I am a Windows box running IIS"
%>

then make a file called test.php

and put this code in it

<?php

echo "I am a linux box running php";

?>

which ever one actually gives you back JUST the sentence is what you box is
When I browse to the URL containnig the file test.asp it displays all of the code as follows:

<%@Language = "VBScript"%>
<%
Response.write = "I am a Windows box running IIS"
%>

When I browse to the URL containnig the file test.php it displays an error message "Page cannot be found."
personally i would just email their support and ask

"can i use
Frontpage?
ASP?
Perl?
php?"

once they have answered head over to www.hotscripts.com and select which they allow.

if it is frontapge that will be easy to do... but let see shall we
