Well gentlemen I must say goodbye, my post has gone un-answered, I am 
unable to get Apache to respond, and I have run out of time trying to 
make it work as an internal server for testing cgi, perl, and SSI 

I have read, reread, and reread again the documentation on your web site 
and I still do not understand how to make Apache serve my internal web 

Good luck to all of you who do understand this valuable tool.
