Hi, you might want to look at the 2.6 kernel. No more khttpd. Why? Well
apparantly the "slowness" of apache (and all other servers) was due to
limits in the older kernels wich have now been overcome.

So the claim is that its usefullness has gone and you could just use any

Of course this may not apply to you  as there still is some hardware not

Sorry been too long that I played withit to help you with setting it up.
