http://websites/ yields "Proxy Error"
http://localhost/ yields "Bad Gateway"

I did.

that, too.  However, the Document Root says "C:/Websites" 
another says "C:/Websites/AgendaTest" both of which are the actual
directories except for the "/" instead of "\".

I tried using all lowercase there, but it didn't seem to make a
difference.

This is what I think is the problem.  It may be that I have to do a
reboot after modifying the hosts file.  I'll try that.

Ok, I'll eliminate it.

Thanks for the help!
