Need to Change a Submit Button From MS Front Page to...?

A client has a website hosted with a company that ceased supporting Front Page.
http://www.eidnesfurs.com

Their "order securely" link goes to:
https://icanfixi1.securesites.net/online_order_form.htm

When you click on the submit button, 404 error.
I'm not familiar (at all) with Front Page.
Here's the submit code  (I think):

<form method="post" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--" onSubmit="location.href='../../_derived/nortbots.htm';return false;" webbot-onSubmit="">
    <input TYPE="hidden" NAME="VTI-GROUP" VALUE="0">

A Table...

Submit Button:
<input name="Submit1" type="submit" value="submit"><input name="Reset1" type="reset" value="reset">

Any idea what I can do to make the submit button work? Would I use JavaScript?

Thanks

1. Yes, publishing the page from my local computer to the server. The page was working for years. Previous web designer did the original work. I'm just trying to fix this problem until the owner finds a more permanent solution.
2. Not on GoDaddy, on Verisign
3. Thanks for the links. They helped me realize that there is NOTHING I can do to get the form to work the way it did using the FrontPage existing commands.

You're right about "emailing the data to the owner". When the submit button is selected, an email is sent to the owner and the page is redirected to a "thank you" web page.

I think the hosting is on a linux server so most likely PHP will work.

Is there a way, using PHP code, to do this same thing?
1. Send an email of the form that is currently there (in all its FrontPage splendor) to the owner and
2. Redirect to a thank you page?

Would I have to build a new form?
