Yes I am compiling myself, but only because this is the way the book
is teaching me.  I'm trying to stick with it for consistencies sake
and my education, I figure I'm learning much more this way than by
just letting the Fedora installation routines handle it for me. 
Besides, next I'll be going through MySQL and then PHP and I would
hate to have missed something or misconfigure something now that will
give me problems later.  I am pooring over the documentatin now but as
you know that's a pretty big task also.

I even tried an example installation as described on the mod_ssl.org
website and that didn't work either.  And it's basically the same
process as the book uses.

I'm wondering though... I've made a script file that runs the
configure program for mod_ssl and it has me enter a long list of
command line switches, for example, --enable-module=mime and
--enable-shared=mime, which makes sense.  However, I don't see a line
that enables ssl, my intuition tells me there should be one.  Or does
the --with-ssl= line take care of that?  I've attached the file if you
care to look at it.

Thanks again,
