The directories should be empty. The mod_frontpage.so Apache module
should intercept a request for files in these directories and call the
appropriate files in /usr/local/frontpage/... or where ever you have the
core FrontPage files installed. This of course will not occur if you do
not have the mod_frontpage.so module loaded, so that may be the first
thing to check.
Check your error_log (both the vhost log and main Apache log, if you
have vhosts configured) for the FrontPage-specific error. I remember
there was some specific problem related to shtml.exe that often came up,
but I can't remember what it was. If you can find an error log entry,
that may refresh my memory on the solution.
