Re: Apache + webDAV + windows XP = ??

erik and others, allow me to specify. i have 2 types of folders: those that
i want version controlled remotely, and those that i want to access and
modify remotely, but don't need version control. i'm happy with the way
version control works remotely for my server. but i cannot get apache setup
such that i may also browse the additional folders, and make changes as
desired. ideally, i'd like to be able to browse to those directories using
any browser, and modify them by some means *without** *installing any
software (or having admin rights). essentially, i work remotely sometimes
from terminals that i don't have control over, so i want to be able to
access all my data (and make modifications) from those computers as well.
those computers are *not* all windows, on the contrary, some are linux or
mac boxes.

is that clear? what do you think i should do?
