just a suggestion with the Windows IIS:

You don't Have to use it. There are some very good solutions out there,
if ASP and Frontpage are the only reason.

The FrontPage extensions are available for Apache since years, so actual
they are running w/o bigger problems. I don't know about the security,
but - hey - you want to run an IIS.... ;)
For ASP there are some tools around and AFAIK a module for Apache too. I
personally prefer the Halcyoon Instant ASP. It's not for free, but it
provides a nearly complete Support for all kinds of ASP's. However, the
better way for the near future might be to switch to PHP for scriptings.

Just my 2 cents...
