      This is not really about Apache::ASP, but a more general
      Apache configuration issue. This is not the correct list
      for posting about general Apache configuration issues, but
      I will try to answer your questions for now... ( please try
      to find a better list for things like this in the future )

      Yes, going to /manual/ should render documents from
      C:/Apache/htdocs/manual/ per the config you described.
      If there is a 404 error ( see browser/access_log), I would
      suspect the config to be overridden in some way, or
      C:/Apache/htdocs/manual/ to possibly not exist.
      If its a 403 error, then make sure things like
      like allow/deny rules are not getting in the way.
      403 might also indicate a file permissions error, but this
      is less likely.

      About PHP running under Randy's distribution, I have no idea
      whether or not he compiled support for PHP in, and would not
      be surprised if PHP did not work. Try to see if there
      is a mod_php type dll included with the distribution
      for your use.

      BTW, as far as I know, Randy does not read this list,
      so you may not get a personal response from him about this.
