MPM module??

cuz i did not know abt this,i configured with simple
./configure --prefix=<prefix>

Whoa. I just looked at the options with configure, n looked for MPM.
Its very unnerving for sure, atleast for me.

Do i have to know the modules used by Apache, and their uses, etc. to do 
an install?
the option --with-mpm=MPM says
--with-mpm=MPM          Choose the process model for Apache to use.

wot are these??n how do i decide wot do i use??

pardon me.. if these qs seem too silly..

I am still reading into all this, but could u just direct me to the 
right stuff.
