You can have Apache divulge a lot or a little information about itself 
(in the HTTP headers, at least) using the ServerTokens directive...

I know this was said earlier, but it seems odd to me that you'd want to 
keep people from knowing this information.  On the surface it sounds 
like a security measure, but in practice it doesn't really make your 
system more secure.

Also, I don't think this is a very common security practice.  Check out 
NetCraft.  It's rare to see a site that makes any system information secret.

Just my $0.02.
