Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs - Application Server. Click
Details. Select Internet Information Services, and then again click
Details. You will see the FrontPage Server Extensions. You might need
your Windows Server 2003 installation CD to complete the installation.

You don't really need the frontpage extensions. VS2005 can publish a
website using FTP. I recommend you to create the website on the remote
server using a FTP client, and then to use FTP as the way to publish. I
never liked these frontpage extensions.

Thanks Laurent and Alexey for the reply.
Actually i could create a website by just using the File System option and
it wrote it to the remote site.
But its quite wierd i have to use FrontPage Extensions just like Laurent
said i don't really fancy it myself.
With VS 2003 i didn't need to do that.
