Welcome to CodingForums, speedoz. :D

I hope I'm not the only one confused by your post, but are you asking us to show you how to edit this site in Front Page or Dreamweaver? Are you looking for just how or where to start? Something else? Personally, after looking at the source code for the home page (eewwww!!) I would scrap that and start completely over. Use whatever code editor you like.

Looks like it was built using DreamWeaver, and yes, it's not a pretty site under the hood.
I'd personally steer clear of Frontpage; it is not a very good editor and while it may seem tempting that you can throw together a layout quickly, the end result is terrible and the pre-cooked options are rather limited and confining.

You'll be better off with DreamWeaver; there are good books on the market about how to use it and I'm sure there are online tutorials available, too. I would however strongly recommend you to get to grips with at least the basics of HTML and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) so you know what DW is doing behind the scenes.
The tutorials at HTML Dog (http://htmldog.com/) offer a nice starting point.

theres a dummines guide book for everything - dummies.com, they got me started. I'm reading an ajax one now.

heres the section to kick off with - http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-100123.html

You can usually pick these books up on ebay for less.

Ronnie's right. Dreamweaver rocks and well worth the investment.
