    </body>

    </html>

    IS THIS CORRECT?

    QUESTION 2. DO I NEED TO ASK MY HOST/SERVER TO CREATE ANY FOLDER OR FILES FOR THIS TO WORK?

    I HAVE NOTICED 4 NEW FOLDERS HAVE BEEN CREATED ON MY HARD DRIVE (_DERIVED/_PRIVATE/_VTI_CNF/_VTI_PVT) DO I NEED TO UPLOAD ANY OF THESE FOLDERS TO THE SERVER?

    THANKS FOR THE HELP.

    You are going to have a hard time getting help on this one... most people here do not use FrontPage because itís the devil.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that any premade frontpage things require the frontpage extentions installed on the server. That should fix the problem.

    On a side note, stop using Frontpage and get something like Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004. Its a far better WYSIWYG editor than frontpage. Any you will be able to ask questions about problems you have with it and not have people guess. Most people at sitepoint do not use FrontPage so its hard to get answers about frontpage problems.

    Use a hosted guest book. They are hosted for you and all you do is link to them. Thats going to work for you.

    Or use frontpage like you wanted to.

    I'm pretty sure there are quite a few opensource guestbooks available, you can change the settings to suit your needs if you are a coder.
