Some first time users may use HTTP header or status code as a black box
and won't know much more then staus 404. I remember my first steps. I
set up a server at my local machine to test cgi's not knowing how the
server works. At this level I did not need and want more documentation
then how to install the server and make it serving cgis.

To be able to _work_ with apache and its doc, know-how about basic
concepts are nesseccary. I think, the level is ok.

But it would be fine to have a direct link to a document explaining the
HTTP basics in a beginners friendly way.
