Believe it or not, I actually managed this. But I'm still having a
problem. When I try and start up a new server it errors out by telling
me port 80 is unavailable. (This is not true, I checked the
etc/services file and nothing is assigned to port 80; I even tried
some other ports with no luck). The funny thing is that the server
seems to be running off of port 80 anyway. At least it shows me the
files I expect when I type in the URL from my NT workstation.

Well...it's not so much that my company has no expertise in UNIX; it's
more that my part of the company doesn't. But, I think we really need
to. The server we actually have our home page posted on is a UNIX box
owned by our parent company and administered by an outside provider I
do not have total faith in. I'd like to have a better understanding of
how the server with our Web page is running on can be administered and
configured. That's why I want to get the same server application
(Netscape Enterprise) running on the same operating system (UNIX) on a
box I have direct control over.
