My good man, I am still trying to find my way out of the 19th century, or something like that. :D
I will however accept the beer :D :D :D :D :D and sit and discuss this matter with you. Would like to see the answers.

My bit of advice is buy a brand new PC, running XP, invest in a proper firewall, a proper Virus Checker, get yourself broadband and make sure you regularly download all microsoft updates.

Many people soldier on with old PC's, without a firewall or virus checker, don't realise they have viruses and wonder why the PC crashes so often, adn why its been getting slower and slower for the last few months.

If you can't do it yourself, there are many "home" PC Engineers out there that can do it for you.

Armed with a reliable, fast, PC, will make building a website a lot, lot easier.

If you're not trying to do anything too fancy, good old Netscape Composer works really well. That and a simple FTP programme (I use WSFTP-Pro) can make life really easy as it then becomes a 2-step process; 1) Create your page and save it to 'My Documents' or somesuch folder, 2) click and drag it to your ISP. Voila.

If you want to go fancy, I'd recommend a training course, many of which are run by local adult ed places. Personally I avoid the Micro$oft web design products as they are just too hard to understand (at least they don't seem to explain anything easily) and they never seem to do what I want them to. I still use my pre-M$ Visio as it's so much easier than the latest M$ version.......

Hvae you tried searching for templates that you can edit? do a google for 'website templates' and you'll get about 41million hits...

The problem with FrontPage and Netscape composer (apart from they add sooo much unneeded code) you'll find that most of the HTML it creates isn't cross browser compatible.. e.g If you make a site with FrontPage, it will look fine in IE but will be wrong if you view it in Netscape...

If you are not in a real rush for a website, email me the details and I’ll have a go at one for you…
