We have a website that is in ASP form and wish to convert it to ASP.NET on a new server that is running Windows Server 2008. Maintenance on the existing site is done via Frontpage. Since Windows Server 2008 does not use Frontpage extensions we want to
shift to SharePoint Designer. We do have SharePoint MOSS2007 but can't afford additional licenses right now so we have to stick with ASP.NET I would like to take advantage of master pages to consolidate a large number of include files but I haven't found
anything on working with master pages via SharePoint Designer unless it is on a SharePoint server.
Is it possible to have the core of the site in the form of an ASP.NET master page developed in Visual Studio 2007 but with content pages created in SharePoint Designer? If it is possible can you help me get started?
Thanks in advance!

There are some misconceptions or misunderstandiungs here. Developing on a Sharepoint server is the same as not using Sharepoint, it's all ASP.NET. Your best bet is to hit a Sharepoint Designer forum for help, around here we're likely to suggest you just
download Visual Web Developer and do it right. :)
