Hi Denise,

As a first thing in life, not in Apache, I would suggest that you learn 
to swim before you jump into deep water.

What do you need or don't need to run??
Apache has a module per each feature, if you don't need some features, 
see which module is loading it and just comment it (#).

In Directories containers:
Options -Indexes

just comment out the lines when they are being added (# at the front of 
each line)
But why would you like to do that?? the highest priority by default is 
being given to English anyways, only if you need to change to any other 
language than i would say to "play" with it.
