Where should I put this URL? I tried to execute  
http:/localhost/cgi-bin/ - this brings up the file download dialog 
instead of giving me the ouput of the script in the browser. I also tried to 
execute my html script that has in an action field of submit button 
''/cgi-bin/" ( my script which is in cgi-bin directory of 
apache). This responds with "page not found" with address 
C:/cgi-bin/ I tried to put this script also in the same 
directory as my html find and put in the action field "" - 
this brings up file download dialog. I tried to put url 
http://localhost/cgi-bin/ - this responds with "Invalid syntax 
error " from IE - "page cannot be displayed- page ...was renamed or removed". 
The apache log does not show any error - IE does. What should I do, to make 
apache handle my requests rather than IE is trying to handle my requests?

Please, help.
