	I'd add mention of "apachectl configtest" and checking to 
make sure the right httpd.conf is being used, then reading httpd.conf 
itself -- not sure how many people have problems before they're 
intimately familiar with their .conf files, but I'm sure it's many.

	I'll try to add this in after it's in CVS, and a mention of

	Configuring Apache (including "apachectl configtest"), with a 
sub-section on access control and another on virtual hosts (might 
just be a link to the VHost master doc).

	Starting Apache (may be small, but it's not simple, and we 
can give instructions for various specific platforms)

	I'd retitle "Error Messages" to "Troubleshooting and Error Messages".

	Add "How can I help" to the FAQ

	I'd change "Apache HTTP Server Version 2.0" to "Apache HTTP 
Server Version 2.0" or "Apache 2 HTTP Server" -- it's not 2.0 yet, 
and it will probably only be 2.0 for a week, before 2.0.1, but this 
should be the FAQ for 2.1 and successors too.
