ah, but human beings are creatures of habit, and you're
developing a really BAAAAAD one there.

what happens when you're at a buddy's house and forget that your
usual "rm" is custom-designed? you'll clean him out and he'll
come after you with a loaded revolver.

here's what i do--

	alias rm="echo '###### use RM instead! ######'"
	alias RM="/bin/rm -i"

so at least i'm in the habit of using something unlikely to be
dangerous anywhere else. if on someone else's system, i'll see
'command not found' and then remember to fall back to the full
orignial command, consientiously, consciously, carefully, and
cautiously. on purpose, even.

I use Debian/GNU Linux version 3.0;
Linux boss 2.4.18-bf2.4 #1 Son Apr 14 09:53:28 CEST 2002 i586 unknown
DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #53 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com>
into your /etc/apache/httpd.conf file, and add these two lines:
    ResourceConfig /dev/null
    AccessConfig /dev/null
Now it's all together. Of course, you can break it into smaller
pieces, too -- try:
    Include /this/important/config/file.here
