"Classic" asp has not been updated for several years, and has been superceeded by asp.NET. Most Windows servers will still serve asp pages, however.

If you are starting, learn asp.NET. This uses the .NET framework and uses VB.NET or C# (your choice) as the scripting language. VB.NET is similar (there are differences) to vbScript.

asp.NET will only run on Windows servers supporting asp.NET 2 or higher (most do, nowadays), or the very, very few Unix servers running Mono. "Classic" asp will run on Windows servers, or the few Unix servers with a costly asp addin.

Also note that FrontPage does not support asp.NET v2 or later. If you follow the asp.NET road get Expression Web for design (and some coding) and the free Visual Studio Web Express for coding (and some design).
