I installed apache for Windows, but when I try to run it, I get this error:
APACHE.EXE: cannot determine local host name.
Use the ServerName directive to set it manually.

I went into you bug database and found an article on exactly the same problem (PR 670).  I
tried your suggested fix, but had no luck.  You suggested "You should be able to get away
with "ServerName localhost".  I went into the http_core.c file and added "ServerName seth_js"
(seth_js is the name of my computer) to the begining of the file?  Did I do the right thing?

add "ServerName localhost" somewhere?  but where?
