Subject Re: Apache 2.0.40 and tomcat 4.1.24

Well, there you have it!  Thanks, John. 
I figured this might do the job, but, despite my pleas, wasn't permitted 
to install anything I that wasn't an RPM due to my client's hosts' 
insanity :-(  So, I insisted on a different box, and we're happily 
running with some RPM version or another.
