While I agree with most everyone in saying stay away from FrontPage (especially since MS is no longer supporting it), Dreamweaver may be too much of a shock for a beginner. It has a very steep learning curve for new users, and it's a great program, but might scare off someone just getting into design. I suggest trying Contribute (Dreamweaver's easier companion program) from Adobe. You can still try it for free from Adobe's website.
Of course, if you want to get into the future of the web, check out Joomla (www.joomla.org), a FREE open source Content Management System. Easy to use and set-up, it's even a one-click install on DreamHost!
