FrontPage98 User Warning!
From Max on 08 May '98
If you use FrontPage, be warned that under some circumstances
it can wipe out your hard drive! It's an unlikely chain of
circumstances, but at least one poor soul has done it.

IF you delete their default directory, AND IF you tell it to
make a web in c:\ (your root directory where all sorts of important
files live), AND IF you then tell it to delete that web, it will
assume that the entire C drive IS the web, and delete it. All of
it, data system files and all.

To prevent this NEVER CREATE ANYTHING IN THE C:\ AREA OF YOUR
HARD DRIVE unless you are very sure what you are doing. Always make
sure you create things with a path that looks like this:
"C:\directoryname" to put things into a sub directory "directoryname".
