Thanks, it looks like the did the trick 
with getting basic authentication to work, but now from XP sp2 Explorer, 
the directory of the WebDAV share, also contains an infinite recursion of 
the WebDAV directory itself !!??!!  Here is my apache setup:

<Directory "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/WebDAV">
    DAV On
    AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit Indexes
    Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "WebDAV"
    AuthUserFile  users/WebDAV.Users
    AuthGroupFile users/WebDAV.Groups
    <Limit PUT>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
        Require group WebDAV-Writers
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
        Require group WebDAV-Readers WebDAV-Writers
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all

And a directory from the server:

root@nessie:/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/WebDAV>ls -la
total 90
drwxrwxr-x   2 apache   apache       512 Apr 12 08:16 ./
drwxr-xr-x   3 apache   apache      1536 Apr  9 13:42 ../
-rw-r--r--   1 apache   apache         0 Apr  9 13:13 desktop.ini
-rw-r--r--   1 apache   apache        12 Apr  6 11:41 foo
-rw-r--r--   1 apache   apache     36558 Apr  9 14:11 java.txt
-rw-r--r--   1 apache   apache      4818 Apr 12 08:16 ydln1.txt

but other then seeing WebDAV inside of WebDAV, it seems to be working !!

Yes. Did you have a specific question?

Lots of people do this, although you need to contend with the various
bugs in various windows versions and sub-versions. An example is here:
