[NBLUG/talk] httpd problem

Well, I am not sure exactly where the problem existed, but a reinstall 
of Fedora 3 *and* doing the update (144 files!) FIRST seemed to solve 
ALL problems.

Another *beginner* item I found was that the default firewall setting in 
Fedora 3 does NOT allow eth0 to go through.  If I had known that, 
setting up my LAN and Samba would have been a 2-3 minute operation, 
rather than too long to admit.
