Sorry, but I'll have to reemphasize the upgrade issue.  I have a vague
recollection of some fix regarding large files and mod_autoindex. 
This could very well be a file-size issue.  (You probably won't have
luck with files greater than 2GB in anything less than httpd-2.1.)

favicon is a file that browsers use to give a site-specific icon in
the bookmarks and url-bar.
