RE: Apache 1.3.26 + Frontpage Extensions + dpkg-buildpackage

After searching though as much docs as I could get my hands on a
colleague suggested I just use webdav instead. THEN after reading up on
that the client decides they do not want it anymore. Wasn't a waste
though cos now I sort of know how to set it up. 

If anyone's stuck with installing Frontpage Extensions on a debian box
with apache I suggest u first try out WebDAV (www.webdav.org).

Thanks For those who helped/replied to my post :)

I have managed to set this up using mod-mirfak
(libapache-mod-frontpage-mirfak). I think I had to hack it a bit - let
me know if it doesnt work immediately.
