Thanks, that worked. So much for examples from Apache 2.0 by Wrox (Peter 
Wainwright) page 622 which I took my configuration from verbatim to 
create a webdav-enabled folder. I think maybe you need to write the book.

We are using NetDrive by Novell to allow access to webdav folders on our 
Apache-Linux server. Some folders need to be read-only.

Thanks very much again,
