To create the form would be pretty simple in Frontpage. The difficult part is to collect the stuff entered into the form and insert it into the database. You would need some kinda server side script to do that. Popular server side scripting languages are PHP, ASP or cgi.

You would create a form like so

<form name="addressbookform" action="insert.asp">

the insert.asp file should contain the script that collects the form data and insert them into the database.

Try this http://www.corvalis.net/address/. It's not in FrontPage but you can install it using SmartFTP which you can download for free. All you need is a good hosting like www.totalchoicehosting.com

Good Luck.
