A *simple* webserver in python : 

---- snip begin ----
from SimpleHTTPServer import *
---- snip end ----

Its in your \python21\lib, hehe.

On the other hand: Apache works fine with python (at least on Windows
2000). Can you explain what didn't work ? If you've tried mod_python
(from you cannot easily bind "standard CGI" scripts
because mod_python has a different syntax (you're dealing
with apache requests etc.)
