will post the links next time round I'm sure - we all do it.
I've always found that books don't get me 'in' to software as fast as just playing around with it does.
What will help is if you can start building a site and just experiment. If you already have some server space with the FrontPage extensions installed it will be helpful, otherwise you could run the personal web server in Windows and download and install the free FP extensions on your own machine.

FE I puposely did not post any "click here" links as there was so many. A search for "front page 2002 tutorials"on google threw up so many I thought it better to let Fat Cat browse them for him/her/self. I apologise if I did not make this clear in my original post.
in a FrontPage web you'll need to hyperlink to a file called forum_toc.htm
The file may be called something else if you have renamed it, but I've given you the default name. This file is generated automatically when you set up the discussion page, and you can obvioulsy use anything as the hyperlink object - a navigation button, or a gif or a phrase, such as "click here to enter the discussion forum".
I assume you know how to set up the hyperlink, but post again if you don't.

It's a good-looking forum interface, and you have plenty of scope for customisation if you buy the $99 license. You'll see what I mean if you click here
