404 is "not found" - unusual for a CGI... Some thoughts:

1) Double check spellings of paths in config and browser. Pay attention
to case, punctutation (- and _) and double-characters.
2) No logs is very funny.. check paths in config and verify that apache
can write in those dirs (ie the user defined by "User"). Do you really
not get an error log anywhere?
3) Is first.pl executable? Does it run from the command-line?
4) Check you have an "Allow" directive for /var/www/cgi-bin/.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
