Subject: apache confusion

i think i figured out why i was having so much trouble with includes 'n' such.  
i thought that "Options" were additive.  for example, if i said:

<directory /www>
options includes

<directory /www/sub>
options indexes

i thought that /www/sub would have BOTH includes and indexes, but it doesn't - 
it ONLY has indexes.  this was what was screwing me up.  i've got it all fixed 
now, of course.

maybe pass this note on to whoever's doing your documentation and have them 
mention it prominently somewhere to save some poor bonehead from a similar 
fate in the future.
