I am using binaries that I downloaded from the Apache site.

If I read the docs and still cannot get it to work I have to trust somebody!
Hey, I sure am not understanding it.

If this is wrong then why is the proper web page showing up? Look at the
ALIAS dir name. Isn't the <Directory name supposed to be that name? It is
the way that I have everything else and they work. And, aside from not
getting the auth dialog box, it works in that I get the proper web page. If
I was getting an error or not getting the right page I would agree.

Does that sound right?
