OK, please forgive the format. This is a "perlpoint" presentation that I
put together for the class that I was teaching, and modified based on
our findings.

One thing that I'd like to ask about is the deal with mod_mime. If I
have a web site consisting *only* of DefaultType documents (say, if I
set DefaultType to text/html), then why can't I run Apache without

When I tried (ie, ran Apache with only mod_dir and mod_log_config) and
went to http://server/ I would get a 404 page, and the error log would
say "file /usr/local/apache/htdocs/ not found"

Anyways, here's our findings. Comments welcome. I'd like to incorporate
these into the security doc, which is a little elderly and somewhat
sparse in these particular areas.
