I sent the previous msg:

I figured it out.  Sun changed the uid and gid of nobody, so changing
the following in srm.conf fixed it:

# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
#  On SCO (ODT 3) use User nouser and Group nogroup
User nobody
Group #60001

You may wish to add some more comments to this section.  I thought
that the #-1 after group in the original meant that the group id
was commented it.  It's not consisten to use # other than commenting.

Sorry to waste your time on the previous msg.
