pcs         99/03/19 07:55:27

  Modified:    .        README.NT
  Log:
  Make the NT README more consistent with the standard README. Remove
  things which are not really relevant to someone reading this
  file after installing the pre-compiled binary (e.g. "Multithreading
  is not properly abstracted"). Remove <...> from around filenames and URLs.

  -What is it?
  ------------
  +                                 Apache
  +                             Version 1.3 (and up)
   
  -Apache is an HTTP server, originally designed for Unix systems. This
  -is the first major release of Apache for Windows systems, including
  -Microsoft Windows NT, 98, and 95.  Like the Unix version, it includes
  -many frequently requested new features, and has an API that allows it
  -to be extended to meet users' needs more easily. It also allows ISAPI
  -extensions.

  -WARNING
  --------
  +  The Latest Version
  +  ------------------
   
  -Apache on Win32 has not yet been optimized for performance.  Apache still
  -performs best, and is most reliable on Unix platforms.  Over time we
  -will improve performance for Windows NT. Folks doing comparative reviews
  -of webserver performance are asked to compare against Apache on a Unix
  -platform such as Solaris, FreeBSD, or Linux.
  +  Details of the latest version can be found on the Apache HTTP
  +  server project page under http://www.apache.org/.
   
  -Apache on Win32 should still be considered beta quality code.  It does not
  -meet the normal standards of stability and security that Unix releases do.

  -See the website <http://www.apache.org/docs/windows.html> for details of
  -how to install Apache from a binary release or how to compile Apache
  -from scratch. This file is also included in the distribution as

  -Known Problems
  ---------------
  +  Apache on Win32 has not yet been optimized for performance.  Apache
  +  still performs best, and is most reliable on Unix platforms.  Over
  +  time we will improve performance for Windows NT. Folks doing
  +  comparative reviews of webserver performance are asked to compare
  +  against Apache on a Unix platform such as Solaris, FreeBSD, or
  +  Linux.
   
  -To get information about the current set of known problems, see our
  -online bug reporting database at <http://www.apache.org/bug_report.html>.
  -In particular, search for problem reports under the category "os-windows".
  +  Apache on Win32 should still be considered beta quality code.  It
  +  does not meet the normal standards of stability and security that
  +  Unix releases do.
   
  -This is a rough list of what we know has not been implemented on Win32.
  +  Installation
  +  ------------
   
  -- The User directive is not supported. If you run apache as a service,
  -  you can change the user it runs as by going to 
  -  Control Panel->Services->Startup
  +  If you have installed Apache as a pre-compiled binary, you can
  +  now run the server by selecting "Start Apache as console app"
  +  from the Start menu. You can configure Apache for your system
  +  by editing the file conf/httpd.conf in the directory where you
  +  installed Apache.
   
  -- suexec doesn't work
  +  See the http://www.apache.org/docs/windows.html for details of how
  +  to run and configure Apache, or select the "Apache Documentation"
  +  icon read the local copy installed with Apache.
   
  -- RFC 1413 (IdentityCheck) is not yet ported
  +  Known Problems
  +  --------------
   
  -- If you have a very busy server, when a server child process exits,
  -  any connections made to that child process that have not yet been
  -  accepted by it are aborted.
  +  To get information about the current set of known problems, see the
  +  online bug reporting database at
  +  http://www.apache.org/bug_report.html.  Bugs which affect Apache on
  +  Windows and not Apache on Unix can be found under the category
  +  "os-windows".
   
  -- The regex library build does not generate *.ih headers.
  +  Licensing
  +  ---------
   
  -- Multithreading is not properly abstracted
  +  Please see the file called LICENSE.
   
  -- htpasswd passwords are stored in plain text because Windows lacks a
  -  crypt() function
