	I imagined that the force was the source of the problem. I only
used it as a last resort after I could not find an apache-common package
of the correct version. I realize the implications of using the force
options, and only use them as last resorts. 
	I would greatly appreciate a URL as to exactly where this
apache-common package, version 1.3.3, as I looked almost all over
ftp.debian.org and a few mirrors to no avail. Also the package listings on
the debian web site kept turning up version 1.3.0, even when I tried to
follow the deps on libapache-mod-perl.

	Well, that is promising! I still have hope now! :)

	Actually, I run unstable on my Alpha, mainly since that is the
only one available for that platform, so I know some of the adventures
involved with all of that. :) Actually the main reason I don't plan to do
a complete upgrade is bandwidth. Doing a complete upgrade via a 28.8k
modem would probably take until I leave to go back school (where there is
plenty of bandwidth :), and I have other things I want to get down with
mod-perl before then.

	Been meaning to try out apt, just not had time yet. All I have had
experience with is dselect which I have mixed reactions to, but not
wanting to start anything, I will not say anything more. :)

	If you could just let me know where the current version of the
apache-common is hiding, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
