Yep, that's where makefile.nt's been putting it anyway on a make install.

Um, /apache should be the default installation directory. It's the one
compiled into the code.

Yeah, known bug number 764464 - Apache for NT doesn't understand the paths
which start X:/ are absolute, so it'll prepend the server root. You'll
have problems if you try and use stuff on multiple disks. Best stick
everything on C: and never use a drive spec.

I don't think this'll work on Win 95. It can start automatically on NT
when it is installed as a service (with -i), but on 95 it has to run under
a shell (COMMAND.COM). I'm not convinced you are run apps from
the startup menu (or indeed any menu). At least it didn't work when I
tried it.

I think the docs should be there, and source shouldn't.
