Microsoft have recently announced the following about the FrontPage Server Extensions 2002

"The FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 web download is not available
anymore from the Microsoft web sites. This is due to the fact that the
mainstream support for FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 web download
which follows the Office XP/FrontPage 2002 life cycle expired on
7/11/2006. The following article explains the timelines:

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=1902 

However, we understand that customers might need this download in
situations where existing FPSE2002 installations are hampered in one way
or the other. Considering this, it may be possible to obtain this
download for reinstallation purposes only if you call MS support."
