Well, the goal is to simply make everything in the URL which is received by
APACHE lower case, as case sensitivity is a(n) issue on unix/linux/etc.  In
windows it doesn't matter, since filenames are case insensitive (hope that
clears up the confusion)...

Barring what?  Your question is not very clear.  What about the answer
in the FAQ didn't you understand?  (If you are asking if this has
changed in 2.x, the answer is no.)  Regarding mod_speling, no it is
not possible to turn off the Multiple Choices page (without hacking
the source code).  You could try
ErrorDocument 300 http://example.com/404.html
but I don't know if that would work.
