Well, If I were to speculate on what needs to be done to get this going, I
would say:

1. Create a directory httpd-2.0/docs/htdocs/errordocs/

2. Start by putting english error pages for the most common errors
in this directory.  Probably 404.html.en would be a good place to

3. Change the files in httpd-2.0/docs/conf/ to activate the
new errors.  This probably involves
a. Making sure we have SSI and MultiViews support in the errordocs
b. Adding "ErrorDocument 404 /errordocs/404", etc.

If you want to start by creating some sample english pages,
then that should get the ball rolling.

If you need help getting started, I would start by reading:
