    Hi Travis

    I only make web pages and things as a hobby (every night until about 2AM) so one of the other guys that plays with computers for a living (Suzanne or Ram) may want to correct or add to what I say here:

    When I create web pages I use Dreamweaver and Frontpage and then save them to my hard drive.
    When I'm happy with what I have, I connect and log on to my site with an FTP (file transfer protocol) client program such as CuteFTP. Those progs (programs) allow me to see what is stored on my server in one window and then in another window I can see the pages I have created. It appears as if the server is part of my own hard drive and I am looking at both my own hard drive and the server in windows Explorer. I can just drag and drop the new pages into the correct folder on the server. I think the other letters that Arie suggested are just the names of other FTP programs, they usually have names like XXXFTP or whatever.

    All the other stuff like CHMODing is not neccessary most of the time unless you want to alter the permission of the folders on your server. If you don't know what you're doing then don't do that as you could be allowing other people to fool with your site. Just forget I mentioned it, sorry.

    Hope that helps clear it up a bit.

    Cheers, Troy.

    I believe you must be smoking something, unless your a linux junkie, there is no reasonable way to hate XP![/QUOTE]
    Rampuppy: I am sorry but that is good come back [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] . I am not smoking anything - but that would be a great excuse for my lack of knowledge with XP. The reason why it is on my list is the pure fact it is not that compatible with Windows 98 through the LAN (yet). Till I figure out how to make it compatible it will stay on my list of software’s I despise. As I have called Microsoft twice and seems to work fine then in about 3 to 4 days it does not recognize the other computers through the LAN again.

    Thanks Fatboy and NickHubbell, that clears things up at least. I will give Netscape try.

    If you really want to keep things simple, you can use explorer to upload stuff to an ftp server.

    You can also keep it as a favourite in the windows file browser and copy stuff to and from it as if it were a folder on your own computer.

    Travis XP is very compatible with Windows 98/95/etc on a network!

    I use XP (and love it) and have put it onto the only 4 computers here that have the hardware to run it. The rest are all using 98 and even 95 (my boss is a tightwad and some of the accounts guys are still using machines with 8MB of EDO RAM!&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] but I have been able to set up all on the network.

    98 is particularly easy - make a network setup floppy and run the little setup program on it and it sets itself up.

    If you have any trouble making the setup floppy it's not a very big prog - 317KB, send me your email addy (mine here at work is troy@balihaicruises.com) and I'll email you the prog with instructions on how to use it.

    Cheers, Troy.

    PS didn't know you could do that Dodec, thanks.

    Thumbs up

    i have dreamweaver 4, fireworks 4, adobe photo shop 6, adobe go live, and jasc paint shop pro 7, i use all these programs to build a web site, just depends on what your doing, i think frontpage sucks! its too limited, and it really has no drive for me to use it, ive made 100+ page websites using these programs, dreamweaver4 allows you to do anything, i mean anything you want,have the image software hooked up to it, your unstoppable! these are the best programs ive used [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]



    ccrider

    OH yeah! dreamweaver has its own ftp uploader, so does GoLive from adobe
    follow your desires, even the spur of the moment has its purpose in life!

    OK, first,

    As Fatboy said, XP is fully compatible with 98, I have had a 98 system and an XP system running side by side on my network for over a year... flawless communication... I would suspect that either one or the other of your machines has corrupted files pertaining to network sharing... you might want to try re-installing both of the... heck.. bite the bullet and upgrade the other, I assure you, XP is pretty much the bomb in OS's right now. (I know, it doesn't compare to linux.. hush you junkies.)


    As for Macromedia vs Frontpage... and frontpage sucking...

    I am a macromedia nut, I have flash 5 and the rest of the macromedia suite for that generation... and photoshop, so I am no light weight in this arena, for what I need, Dreamweaver is best... but you miss the point if you try to compare dreamweaver and frontpage... frontpage is for those that are not so savvy, it was origionally designed for ma and pa kettle to put their family photos on the web, or to throw up their small business... not to make huge corporate quality sites. For what Frontpage tries to accomplish, it is a great tool. For more complex stuff, dreamweaver kills the competition... heck, in ease of inserting flash, nothing comes close... but for all I love it, Dreamweaver has it's flaws as well... as I said earlier... sometimes working with tables in dreamweaver is enough to drive one insane... most of the time not... but when it does get finicky, I fire up frontpage, and easily work through it... sometimes simpler, is better.
    (Thanks by the way... I try to be fun with my running commentary).

    I have found that Frontpage is very Internet Explorer biased, and stuff that it creates can look absolutely illegible on other browsers.

    I highly recommend learning the basics of html coding before starting to use a fancy editor - it will make your design more efficient and will help you to fix the quirky things that all wysiwyg editors seem to do.

    I talked to one of the Microsoft technicians Wednesday. The problem is fixed for now (key word is "now"). It was fixed once before, then a couple days later it does not recognize anyone on the LAN. I am waiting to see what will happen tomorrow or on Monday. To add to the problem it will not print through the LAN consistently . Since there is no local printer it has to print through the LAN. Thanks SO much for the help and info! Pft is actually a good place for tech support too. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I have a computer at home (duh?). I have Windows ME and it seems to run good *knock on wood*. The only thing I plan on doing to my home computer is to get USB port installed. So, when I do get a digital camera I will be able to post some pictures of my family of course (CP's). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] k/d. The sad part it is true to a certain point - I am sure you know what I mean.
