D'oh, forgot to post it.

In theory I have turned on followsymlink.  That is what is checked in
the RedHat Apache config tool.  And checking httpd.conf shows
followsymlinks turnd on as far as I can tell.

Some solved a problem of not being able to access a mounted drive by
symlinking to it.  That may have just put a bandaid on a completely
different problem though.

Thanks,
