Listen out to this first before u are in a rush to close this bug again:

When I try starting it via the Service Start option, it fails saying that the 
following:
"Windows could not start the Apache2 on Local Computer. For more information, 
review the System Event Log. If this is not-Miscrosoft service, contact the 
service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 1."

So then I go to the Event Logs and look into the System Log and see the 
following:
"The Apache2 service terminated with service-specific error 1. "

Then I look into the Application Log inside the Event Viewer and see two 
entries and they are the following:
1.
"The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> Syntax error on line 475 of C:/Program Files/Apache 
Group/Apache2/conf/httpd.conf:  "

2.
"The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> <Directory "E:/Test/Monkey/"> path is invalid.  "

Now E:\ is  valid NFS mounted drive on my machine and I can reach it and 
retrieve all the files. 

If I remove this Directory Alias from the httpd.conf file APache starts up 
WITHOUT any problem. But the moment I put it back in it fails.

Now if leave the service part and keep the same httpd.conf file which has the 
NFS mounted E:\ drive files and just to to the C:\Program Files\Apache 
Group\Apache2\bin directory and just click on the Apache.exe executable, it 
launches a command window and the webserver starts up and I am able to view all 
the E:\ drive files from a browser.

I hope I have presented enough clarification on this BUG! I don't want to be 
pointed again to that old documentation link that only talks about the 1.3.1 
release. Again I am running the 2.0.43 Apache binary. 

Thanks and I hope to get a resolution on it soon.
