Errr, nope. It'll work much better if I do!

Yeah, seems that way.

Hmmm ... I quote "Now create the install directory, and extract Apache
into it. The Apache files will normally come either direct from CVS at a

That's a pain, then I have to check it out twice! Is this really
necessary? Can't I just check out Apache to c:\apache then build/install
it, then run IS2?
