   Installing a Binary Release
  +Since this file is installed as part of the install process, you have
  +probably already figured out how to install the binary. But for
  +reference, here are the instructions:
  +Run the Apache distribution file. This will ask for a location to
  +install Apache into (the default is \Program Files\Apache
  +Group\Apache), for a start menu name (default is Apache Web Server)
  +and for a choice of installations. The Typical installation installs
  +everything except the source code. The Minimum installations does not
  +install the manuals either. Choose Custom install if you want to
  +install the source code.
  +After installation is completed, there are three new items on the
  +start menu. On NT you should run the "Install Apache as Service"
  +program, then start Apache as a normal service. On Windows 95 or if
  +you do not want to run Apache as a service, click on the "Apache
  +Server" option. This will start Apache running in a console window,
  +where it will print its version number, then wait to start serving
  +requests. The third start menu option accessing the manual, if it was
  +installed. If it was not installed, you can access the Apache manual
  +at the URL
  +Once Apache is running (either in a console window, or as a service),
  +if you have not edited the configuration files, it will be listening
  +on port 80, so you can connect to it at this URL:
  +  http://localhost/
  -The binary release is not yet available.
  +To configure Apache, go into the directory where you installed it and
  +edit the "httpd.conf" file in the "conf" directory.
