FrontPage probs on new computer

Ok, I've been using FP 2000 for a few years now, just learning as I go along, so I only know what I need to know and if I get stuck I can usually find out with a quick search, but this problem as got me stumped and I can't find an answer as yet.

Just bought a new computer and have been trying to work on a couple of my websites with FP but I can't seem to save any new pages to the live website by using the save icon as I did before, it just wants to save it to my computer instead.
The only way I can do it is to duplicate a page already on there, make changes to it & re-name, then save.
I can't go on like this, it's driving me mad.
I'm sure it's something really simple but I just can't work it out.
On my hosting companies control panel is says that I have FP extension installed, so I guess it's something that I need to configure on my new computer.

Can someone please put me out of my misery!

Welcome aboard lme4, when installing FP on this comp, did you properly set up the publish functions? To "save" to your web site, it has to connect via the FTP login and password to transfer the files to your site.
