Subject RE: mod_jk and mod_jk2 HELP

I don't have to specifically use the JkMount directive, but rather the
following syntax..(taken directy from the default

info=Example webapp in the default context. 

info=Prefix mapping

info=Extension mapping

It basicially does the same thing as the JkMount, but it stored in a
seperate configuration file.  I haven't found a lot of documentation on
the syntax of the file, so I have had difficulty getting my legacy app
to work with it.
