FP98 extensions & security

Today I played a bit with IIS4 and the Frontpage 98
server extensions. I upgraded the server extensions
to the latest version available on the web but I have come
into the following difficulties:

Creating a frontpage web for a virtual web server on IIS4
seems to only work correctly when using the frontpage server
administrator and not when enabling "frontpage web" in the IIS4
management console under "directory properties"?

Another problem I saw was that only the frontpage administrator entered
at the creation of a frontpage web through the frontpage server administrator
seems to be able to administrate and change the web site using the frontpage
98 client. Trying to add another user to the administration list of a
web can be done without any error using the frontpage server administrator but
this user isn't accepted when trying to publish a web site using the
FP98 client. The ACL permissions seem to be correct.

Any tips,
