I'm obviously missing something, after 2 weeks of fiddling and
scouring the manual, I haven't gotten past the most basic
steps...which as a professional developer is obviously

I've got SalesCart Pro 5 installed, FrontPage, created a new
website, add Product Link. I fill in a part number and a
description and price, click OK.

Now, I recognize I'm actually just adding a link. do I
add the actual product? I'm assuming that the products are
stored in shop.mdb, but the modification date isn't changing (I
don't have MS Access so I can't open it to look at it). But in
looking at the asp code in the cgi-bin folder, it looks like it
actually keeps products in product.db? At what point/how does
this get created?

Why is it when I add a product link I get a little icon that says
"SalesCart Component View On WebServer" and its code is <!--

By default your products are not stored anywhere but the product page that you're working on. And the code above is what stores the product information when you add a product link.

What you see in FrontPage is a "place holder" for the Quantity graphic, text box and the add to cart button.

The code above is actually incomplete. You should go to FrontPage > tools > recalculate hyperlinks to ensure that your code is up-to-date.
