Sweet!  Thanks.

I guess that leaves me with a question I didn't intend on asking.  What's
the status of Apache2 on Linux?

There was a /. expose on it awhile ago - many people were very unhappy with
Apache2, for reasons ranging from not playing well with PHP to security
concerns (IIRC, it had something to do with Apache2 assuming that some
libraries were thread-safe when the libraries in question were not thread

My initial reaction is to hold off on Apache2.  I only know as much Apache
as I need to know for a basic setup - if something unusual and bad happened,
I'd be sunk.  But the bad stuff I read was awhile ago by now.

What's the scuttlebutt on Apache2?
