Hello,

I believe Frontpage extensions are no longer included with server 2008, rather they have to be downloaded and installed seperately.  Have a look at this link.  Hope this helps.

I've tried to install Frontpage following the instructions at the link but after search for some troubles with installation I found this:

Currently there are no plans to support FPSE on IIS 7.5. Demand for FPSE has decreased over the past few years in favor of industry-standard protocols like WebDAV and FTP. That being said, I wrote a walkthrough titled "How to Migrate FPSE Sites to WebDAV" that you can find at the following URL:
 
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/359/how-to-migrate-fpse-sites-to-webdav/
 
In this walkthrough I describe something that I've been doing a lot recently, which is to move away from FPSE on my web sites in favor of WebDAV. What's more - if you use the built-in WebDAV redirector in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 (including R2) you can map a drive to a web site over WebDAV and open it open in an FPSE-friendly client (like older verison of FrontPage or Visual Studio) and still preserve all of your FrontPage metadata.

What do you think?

Sounds like you found the solution yourself.  Unfortunately, I have no experience with WebDAV so I cannot advise on it.  However, this link seems to be a trustworthy approach.  Good luck!
