Here is a copy of some useful info put out by MS. It worked for me. Write

Display an Image Using Data from a Database:
With FrontPage 2000, you can use information from a field in a database to
display images on your Web page.
The sample database contains a column called Image. This field contains a
file name for an image. You can use this information to display this image.
NOTE: Three images that you can use for this example are located in the Images

is selected and Employees is selected from the list. Click Next.

In Step 5 of the Database Results Wizard, click to select the Display all
records together option, and click Finish.

animal1.gif picture from the images folder by using the Picture command on
the Insert menu. This places the lion image in the table.
Right-click the image you just inserted, and click Picture Properties.
Under Picture Source, click Browse, and then click Parameters.
In the path field, remove the current path and then click Insert Field Parameter
and select Image.
Click OK three times. You see a small broken image icon in the column under
Save the page as show.asp on the File menu.
