Now my named virtual host is working correctly, I've another problem,
and I think this is an easy one. It's just a matter of what "flavor,"
if you will, of the directive to use.

is what shows up in the address bar of a browser when I browse to the
URL of the named virtual host--i.e., I browse to but the address that shows up in the address
bar when I get there is the one in the A-record (e.g.,,

mod_rewrite fixes this, right? If so, which of the several ways of

Also, how do I find out for certain if the mod_rewrite module is even
