Normally the SSI files are kept in the root folder of the web site where 
they can be easily found for modification.

If the SSIs work on your home PC making a copy of the config file and 
moving it over to your work PC should fix your problem.  Just make sure 
you rename the present config file to something like 
httpd08282003.config in case you have to fall back on the original.

If your home config file works on your work PC send me a copy of the 
file to work with here.  If the config file does not function on your 
work PC then there must be a difference in Windows XP.
