-<p>If you are installing Apache on Windows 95, stop.  First you need to
-   download and install the Windows Socket 2 Update from Microsoft, before
-   you proceed to download and install Apache on Windows 95.  Windows NT 4.0,
-   98, ME and 2000 versions already ship with Winsock2.  You may obtain that

-<p><strong>Warning:</strong> You must have WinSock2 TCP/IP networking 
-   correctly installed, configured and running in order to install Apache on 
-   Windows.  If you use dial-up networking exclusively, you may need to be 
-   dialed in to the internet for Apache to correctly determine that TCP/IP 
-   is installed.</p>

-   Service Pack 1.  You may obtain that service pack from;</p>

-</dd></dl>
-
-<p><strong>Additional Warning:</strong> we recommend disabling the "Quality
of 
-   Service" (or QoS) network driver from Microsoft if you are using Apache, since 
-   Apache does not support the QoS extensions to the WinSock API.</p>
-
-<p>The original distribution of Windows XP may expose you to a known bug,
-   reported by users of Apache 1.3 and 2.0 on Windows XP.  The effects of this 
-   bug are particularly observed in conjunction with https SSL/TLS connections, 
-   but also occurs in other contexts.</p>
-
-<p>It appears the combination of duplicating file handles between and parent
-   and child process, in conjunction with blocking sends to the http client
-   may result in corrupted output.  You may not see corruption in MSIE, which 
-   tends to throw any error in the 'Cannot find server or DNS Error' category, 
-   rather than explaining the real error or display the corruption.  You will 
-   only see this corruption over slower links, testing the local loopback 
-   (localhost) generally reveals no corruption.  This is a potential security 
-   risk, since the random, corrupt data served may come from anywhere, such as 
-   the cache of buffered file pages containing sensitive data.</p>
-
-<p>If you receive such errors on Windows XP using SSI scripting or PHP scripts,
-   but not static pages, you are probably a victim of this bug.  Microsoft
-   initially released a hotfix for the issue, that has been superceeded by
-   the Service Pack 1 release.  MSKB article

+
+<h3><strong>Warning:</strong> TCP/IP networking must be installed</h3>
+
+<p>TCP/IP must be correctly installed, configured and running in 
+   order to install and use Apache on Windows.  If you use dial-up networking 
+   exclusively, you may need to be dialed in to the internet for Apache to 
+   correctly determine that TCP/IP is installed.</p>
+
+<h3>If you are installing Apache on Windows 95, <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Skiping the long explanation, but nothing less than Windows 98 is going 
+   to get you anywhere at this point.  Upgrade.  Or install a free 
+   <strong>and</strong> supported operating system.</p>
+
+<h3>If you are installing Apache on Windows 98 or ME, <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Support is less that thorough; however, the Apache HTTP Project has not
+   deliberately defeated your efforts.  You really aught to upgrade or 
+   install a free <strong>and</strong> supported operating system, as none
+   of the developers even have these versions installed anywhere, anymore.
+   Bugs specific to the Windows 9x family will rarely be addressed.</p>
+
+<p>That said, it should work, but upgrade to at least Internet Explorer 6,
+   Service Pack 1.  You don't have to use it, but it just happens to include 
+   updates and bug fixes you need, including the wldap32.dll that Apache 2.2 
+   <strong>requires</strong> to even start.  Alternately, you can refer to
+   <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;288358"
+   >KB article 288358</a>, along with the troublesome-to-obtain update from
+   <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;323455"
+   >KB article 323455</a>.  If you already have wldap32.dll in your 
+   Windows\System32 directory with version 5.0.2168.1, you are fine.</p>
+
+<p>If you are installing on Windows 98, <a href="#msi">obtain the MSI 
+   installer</a> if you have not done so before (Windows ME users are
+   in the clear, it was installed with the operating system).</p>
+
+<h3>If you are installing Apache on Windows NT 4.0, <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Install the Windows NT Service Pack 6a or later.  Then, note the comments
+   above with respect to installing support for wldap32.dll (beyond obtaining 
+   this update from Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1) the page you should
+   see is <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/Other/adclient.asp"
+   >http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/Other/adclient.asp</a>.
+   Again, we are looking for wldap32.dll in your Windows\System32 directory with 
+   version 5.0.2168.1, or later.</p>
+
+<p>Also, be sure you <a href="#msi">obtain the MSI installer</a> if you
have 
+    not done so before.</p>
+
+<h3>If you are installing Apache on the <strong>original</strong> Windows
XP, 
+    <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Install the Windows XP Service Pack 1.  Refer to the
+   <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;317949"
+   >KB article 317949</a> if you need the gory details exactly why, or to
+   convince them to send you the specific fix.</p>
+
+<h3><strong>Warning</strong> about the Quality of Service driver</h3>
+
+<p>We suggest disabling the "Quality of Service" (or QoS) network driver from 
+   Microsoft if you primarily use the machine as an Apache Server, as Apache
+   does not support the QoS extensions to the WinSock API.</p>
+
+<h3><strong>Warning</strong> about Firewall and similar software</h3>
+
+<p>Most Firewall programs, Web Spam filters and other TCP/IP driver-based
+   products (including spyware!) do not correctly implement the entire WinSock
+   API.  The shortcuts taken by the developers of such products cause Apache 
+   to fail.  If you insist on leaving such programs installed, and have problems 
+   with your Apache installation, consider the suggestion below.</p>

-<p> The general problem is that many people install various add-ons to
