I've gone to [alief.com...] and downloaded a program/script that you insert in the root of your site and save as a file name siteman.asp.......I need to know how to insert the file into the root...its easy to save the file (unless i'm doing that wrong also)

Thank You

When they say "the root", they mean the top level directory of the web site, or the directory called /. An ASP file is one that is processed on the server side before it is sent to the client. You can embed scripts into the ASP file that will produce HTML or do other processing such as receiving the data posted from a form.

Have a look at this introduction to asp [devasp.com] to get you started.

There are plenty more of these out there - just have a search about. You'll soon understand how it all works, it's pretty straightforward.
