Hi,
	I had the same trouble...
mod_encoding fixes the WebDav XP problem.

The link below has instruction on how to implement it.

Subject: RE: [users@httpd] webdav problem?

Thanks for the reply...but im not sure this is exactly what i am trying
to
accomplish.  The thing is, i dont want a webdav server.  I just want to
open
a Web browser, browse to a URL that happens to be a .DOC file and view
the
file.  Is there any way to completely turn off anything that has to do
with
webdav and apache?

Thanks again.

Jim

4) Use webdrive  instead of XP's native WebFolder capability
