Subject RE: Problem with Apache Alias on Windows NT to mapped drive
Date Mon, 04 Mar 2002 18:26:24 GMT
Sorry for that admin question! and thanks for the feedback. This is a home 
based server, so I'm running my system with Workgroups and won't be able to 
test out your suggestion.  I'll be getting a new HD soon, so won't be an 
issue for long.

Thanks!

Keith
