Before you attempt to do this you should first make yourself familiar with both MS FrontPage and chrooting simple CGI scripts.
Here are some basic steps you need to do:
In this example, we're assuming you're chrooting to /web, and that your document root is /web/docroot.
FrontPage should then happily run chrooted. If you have problems, try using strace or truss to work out what is going on. Also check the web server error log and syslog.
It is possible to have multiple, separate chroot'ed directories for each FrontPage-enabled virtual server Further directories will need separate copies of the library files and the /usr/local/frontpage directory.
A possible alternative to replicating the files would be to hardlink to the files in the /web/lib and /web/usr/local/frontpage directories, though this is predicated by all the chroot'ed FrontPage virtual servers having their docroots on the same filesystem.

A better way to determine which libraries your chroot gaol needs within it is with the following commands:
... where the '
This will list all of the libraries required, one per line. Only these libraries need be copied into the gaol.

This will helps lots to scripting language security concern. I am really surprising to see this first time and I will implement the same in my virtual server configuration.
