Unable to connect with Frontpage or frontpg.lck errors

If you can't log in to a site using Frontpage (repeated prompts for username/password) or if you're getting the following error:

"Server error: The server extensions were unable to access the file frontpg.lck. Please check the file permissions"

This will occur if the username you are trying to login with isn't assigned to the root of the site in File Permissions. This includes users that only have access to subwebs. Any user assigned to the FP extensions must have full NTFS permissions to the entire site since the files that Frontpage uses are located in the root.
