If you install FrontPage extensions on a root web you can use FrontPage to create
the subwebs.
Say you setup a new site called do the DNS, IIS and
FrontPage setup so it all works.
Use FrontPage Explorer and select File/New/FrontPage Web then for #1 select From
Wizard or Template and for #2 select change and enter (make sure you change My New Web to the username
or it will be listed in FrontPage as My New Web). Do an OK and enter your Admin
username and password. It will create the directory for you.
Now the important stuff select Tools/Permissions and select Use unique permissions
for this web and Apply, this will set unique permissions separate from the root web.
Select Users and add the username from the SAM that will administer this web (I
forgot to you have to add the user to the User Manager) give it
Administer/Author/Browse. Ok and your done.
