      Hi Tim,

      <flameproof>AIX is unix hell :=)</flameproof>

      Solaris 8 and better ships with a binary apache
      with a statically linked mod_perl, the following doc
      will guide you:


      If you just want to evaluate Apache::ASP you might consider
      installing on Linux or even on Windows.
