Okay.  That's what I was doing on my 10.2.8 machine.

I needed to re-run configure on the 10.4.2 machine, so I changed it at that
point for the new installation.  That's probably why it's working even though
I didn't do add_virtualhost.

VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW is On, I didn't put the magic in httpd.conf,
and it's all working just the way I want it to work.  My guess is that someone
at Apple put some magic in Tiger that wasn't present in Jaguar, and that
Apache on Macs now handles this in its default configuration.

Anyway, everything seems to be working beautifully.  It's been almost too easy
this time around.

Thanks for your help.
