Go to the Folder List (View, Folders) and open the template or your choice. As soon as it is open, go to File, Save AS... - then save it as the name you want your new page to have. Now, go to the Navigation view (View, Navigation). Is your Folder List open as well? If not, the go to View, Folder LIST to open it.
Next, locate the new filename in the Folder List (it's probably at the bottom), left click over it and while holding down the left mouse button, drag it over into the Navigation Structure and drop it where you want it, so that it is underneath either the Home page or another existing page. Repeat every time you wish to add a new page!
Converting Existing Webs
Unfortunately, there is no way to convert an existing web to a new web template with FrontPage 2000 or 2002. You may, however, simply copy and paste your existing web's page content into each page in the new web you have created with this template.
The bottom line? Web templates are NOT themes - they can't be "applied" like a theme can. Then again, they look SO much more professional than a theme that it's well worth the extra effort!
What's the Easiest Way?
We find that it is usually easiest to simply copy your content from your online web, page by page, from the browser, then paste into FrontPage in "Normal/Design" view. You'll have to double-check, of course, but this method normally carries forward all your information - hyperlinks, form information, etc.
When saving, be sure to set the images/ directory to the directory in your new web you wish to contain your images.
