I have figured out why the .asp files were being downloaded instead of
executed. This was because I had not declared .asp in the mime.types file.
I couldn't do the lwp-request as I am running Apache on Windows 2000, is
this a Linux command?

Now all that happening is an error in the error log saying 
"No such file or directory: couldn't spawn child process"

I think this is due to a directory setting in the asp file.  If anyone knows
of any other problems that can cause this can you let me know

Thanks guys
