Oh, GOD!  Frontpage with Apache is a farking nightmare, Travis.  We
used to offer it and gave it up as a real management nightmare.  I'd
have to go back and look at my archives to give you details, but I do
recall that each user's directory has to have the FP executables in it.
Doing this on a virtualhost system can be horrific.

Man, if I could ever dissuade you from even offering such an awful
abomination, I'd do it.  Microsoft doesn't even support it anymore.

There are literally hundreds of HTML generators out there that only need
an FTP upload to make them live and they'll work on IE, Apache or any
other webserver out there.  Do NOT get into this black hole.  Trust me!
Treat it like a hotel fire...stay low and just get the hell outathere!
