I need some help- I have tried almost everything,but am not successful.

I have a geocities pro hosted website- geocities pro offers no php,no perl support. It has Frontpage 2002 support - but i have not got discussion board to work there.Please let me know if someone else has.

Please let me know if there is a way out.
As far as I see,I have 3 options
a) go to another host - which i dont want to since I have backlinks pointing to geocities
b) have my forums link point to a commercial remotely hosted bulletin board which allows adsense (my primary source of revenue)
Please let me know if you know of a good commercial bulletin board host which allows adsense
I am not expecting more than 1000 visitors every day,to start with
c) some other way to host forums on my site,without perl/php/cgi

Pls. help

Your only real option is a remotely hosted forum. As far as I know they are all ad supported so you have to pay them to get rid of the ads. Only then can you put your own ads on.
