:-) If you build Cocoon with the Slide block included there is an easy 
way to get Slide WebDAV server running. It should be as easy as 
uncommenting the slide servlet in web.xml. By default the servlet is 
then mapped to http://localhost:8888/webdav/ . The slide configuration 
can be changed by editing WEB-INF/slide.xconf .
