Maybe.  Might also mean you are not starting it as root.

I have just finished setting up NCSA-httpd_1.4.2 on my linux machine.
 But I get an error message that it cannot bind with port 80.  
this means that something else is binding with port 80 correct?
How do I find out what is binding/using what port and when?

Oh btw, on the CERN vs NCSA thing.  I pick NCSA.

After struggling with CERN's server and their absolutly nill documentation
for about 3 nights.  I went to NCSA on a whim, and got it running (except for
the port 80 thing) in about 30 minutes.  NCSA's server distributation is
loaded with helpfull documentation, and it actually set up the directory
structure when I used tar on it.

Oops! You're quite right.  As penance, I obtained the lsof location.
