Subject Re: Help: Everything but the last step?

         Thank you for the response.  I looked in the file and that 
statement is there and the one next to it is true so it should display but 
I cannot get the Cocoon.xml page to display.  It just says that Cocoon.xml 
was not found on this server.  At this point I'm not sure what to do.  I do 
not have any of the other packages installed like Xerces, etc.  Do I need 
those to get this to work? (I'm working on the assumption, No)
         In the install instructions there is a line that says I have to 
pass the location of the file to the servlet zone and 
then it gives this line:[path-to-cocoon]/bin/co

I left the default /etc/httpd/conf/jserv/ file alone but I'm 
wondering if the above line needs to go somewhere in order to get Cocoon 
working.  I don't know what file that line is suppose to go in? Do I need 
this line somewhere to get the Cocoon.xml test working?

I'm asking all this because I don't know why Cocoon doesn't seem to be 
working.  When you follow the directions and don't understand them 100% 
it's hard to figure out what might be wrong from the list of about a 
million possibilties.  I hope someone can help me decipher what is wrong as 
I try to learn how all this pieces together.

Thanks again.
