The problem is somewhere with Frontpage server extensions, as far as I
could figure out.
I got the crashes when I used it and got only a single crash in about two
monthes since not using it.
I have NT4, SP3, all hotfixes, dual PPRO, 256Mb, IIS3, FP97 ext. (latest),
WarFTPd, Netscape News and Mail.
The symtomps were the same.

I still didn't convince myself to purge and reinstall IIS with dozens of
virtual servers. Anybody out there who has experience with this? Is it
enough to save the registry key with the virtual domains? Or how would one
do this (without manually entering all info)?
