which is why you can just modify the urls on the front page to point to your
local mirror, rather than go through all of that to redownload a copy of
a file you already have, to replace the front page..

from what i can tell your script does..

you mirror apache.
you then get the httpd.html file
you replace the existing index.html with this file
you change pointers in this file to your local site.

perhaps i misunderstood.. why not skip stpes 2 and 3 - just change pointers
in the index file apache supply ?
