1 - Top posting - bad idea. Makes it harder to find out what you might
be referring to if you don't include the original message.
    - Example of top-posting:
          A - To get to the other side.
          Q - Why did the chicken cross the road?

2 - yes, I believe that was the module name. I believe you got it off
of muquit.com or something like that?? It states 2.x, but Apache 2.2.x
changed the entire authentication/authorization scheme from previous
versions. The integrated LDAP module is mod_authnz_ldap. You include
it by using the --with-ldap --enable-ldap --with-authnz-ldap options in
the ./configure script.
