Thanks Robert!  I've virtually performed no customizations other than
commenting out "RedirectMatch ^/$ /apache2-default/" in
/etc/apache2/sites-available/default.  It says that it "still [has] /
go to the right place" but this doesn't always seem to be the case for
me.  Other than that, it is pretty much right out of the box.  I assume
the modules loaded are the ones in

	# ls /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/
	alias.load            authz_user.load  mime.load         status.load
	auth_basic.load       autoindex.load   mod_python.load   userdir.conf
	authn_file.load       cgid.conf        negotiation.load  userdir.load
	authz_default.load    cgid.load        perl.conf
	authz_groupfile.load  dir.load         perl.load
	authz_host.load       env.load         setenvif.load

Thanks again,
