Thanks again, Stephen.  I kind of figured it would be apache that I would have
to study.  I'm not excited about learning apache, not because it's not
and like you say, "cool stuff" is possible.  It's just that MythTV is
so much more
fun than apache.

Thank you for the pointer to the documentation.  To be truthful tho, what I'm
going to try first is to resurrect the '.htaccess' file method to get
Mythweb to work.
I just cannot see the wisdom in making Mythweb so much more complicated
by getting rid of the '.htaccess' file.  If '.haccess' no longer
works, THEN I'll be
really motivated to study the apache documentation.  But at that point, Mythweb
will come very close to being way more trouble than it's worth to install it.
