You aren't a moron if you asked here...

Never worked for me.

Try Xitami (we've been discussing it here).  Put the following at the top
of your CGI scripts:

    #! c:\python22\python.exe -u

Change the 22 to whatever version you are using.  Note the space after the
exclamation point.  The # should be in the first column; indenting the line
here is for emphasis.

Get it from http://www.xitami.com

Apache is great, but until the new version for Windows comes out, I can't
recommend it on Win98.  I run Apache on several Linux servers.
