  -<p>Before you will install Apache on <strong>Windows 95</strong>, you

  -   <strong>must</strong> update your version of WinSock.  See

  -<h2>The current stable release is Apache 1.3.22</h2>
  -
  -<p>As of Apache 1.3.22, we no longer distribute an installation package
  -   that includes the source.  The Apache HTTP Server source code is at
  -   <a href="../../">/dist/httpd/</a> and is available as a .zip file
  -   with DOS line endings (cr/lf pairs.)</p>
  -
  -<p>Also, as of Apache 1.3.22, a full setup package (.exe) containing the
  -   Win9x/WinNT Microsoft System Installer installer is available.  If the
  -   Microsoft System Installer is already on the machine, there is no need
  -   to download the .exe, save yourself 3MB and download the .msi package.
  -   [The .exe installer will not be created for beta releases of Apache 2.0.
  -   Get the Microsoft Installer if you wish to participate in the beta.]</p>
  -
  -<p><strong>Looking for an older version?</strong>  Don't.  There have
  -   been a number of essential bug fixes and corrections to the evolving
  -   support for Win32 under Apache.  More critically, there was a potential
  -   denial of service attack affecting only Win32 and OS2 that was closed 
  -   with the release of 1.3.20.  1.3.22 fixes further problems.   If you 
  -   <em>must</em> run an earlier version,  
  -   you must build Apache from sources and apply the bug fix.

  +<p>Since Apache version 1.3.22, a full setup package (.exe) containing the

  +<p>The two -no_src versions, both the .exe and .msi installers DO NOT
  +   contain the source code.  There is no other difference, and if you do
  +   not know the C language, or have no C compiler installed, these versions
  +   are faster to download.  There is no other difference between these 
  +   packages and the -src .msi version.</p>
  +
  +<p>You must have the Microsoft System Installer, version 1.2 or greater,
  +   already installed if you want to install the -src version.  If this 
  +   bothers you, seek the .zip file in <a href="../..">/dist/httpd/</a>.
