Course Objective: You will modify existing pages and webs by creating a splash screen, frames, forms,
and FrontPage Web components to create and manage more collaborative, dynamic, and interactive
webs.

    •    600 MB of free hard-disk space.
    •    Either a local CD-ROM drive or access to a networked CD-ROM drive.
    •    A 3.5"-disk drive.
    •    A two-button mouse, an IntelliMouse, or compatible pointing device.
    •    VGA or higher-resolution monitor; Super VGA recommended.
    •    9600 baud modem or higher.
    •    A multimedia computer required for sound and other multimedia effects. A hardware-
         accelerated video card or MMX processor will provide improved graphical rendering
         performance.
    •    An Internet connection with access to the World Wide Web is necessary to complete some tasks
         throughout the book. (Note: Internet access may require payment of a separate fee to a service
         provider; local charges may also apply.)

Platform Requirements
    •    Windows 2000 Professional with the Personal Web Manager and FrontPage 2002 Server
         Extensions. This book was written using the Windows 2000 Professional operating system with
         Service Pack 2 installed. At the time this was written, Microsoft Office XP Professional installs
         Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 which conflicted with Service Pack 2—you would receive
         server time-out errors. Upgrading it to the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer solved
         that problem. If you are using Windows 2000 with Service Pack 2, go to the Windows Update
         site, http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com, to upgrade to the latest version. Using this book with
         other operating systems or configurations may affect how the activities work. (Note: The
         manufacturer states that Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage will work with
         Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows ME—which does not support the Personal Web
         Manager—Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0, and Microsoft Windows 2000
         Professional. Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage will not run on the Microsoft
         Windows 3.x, Microsoft Windows NT 3.5x, or Microsoft Windows 95 operating systems.)

Software Requirements
    •    A Complete installation of Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage—see the Class
         Setup Requirements for additional instructions.
    •    An installed printer driver. (Printers are not required; however, each PC must have an installed
         printer driver to use Print Preview.)
