I've set up dav before, and from what I recall the docs on apache's site 
were pretty straight forward, but I do remember there were some missing 
elements, I just don't recall if it was to do with php or dav. I'll poll

You may like them. You will see. You may
like them in a tree.
How do you spell cooperation? Pessimists use
each other, but optimists help each other.
Collaboration feeds your spirit, while
competition only stokes your ego. You'll
find the best way to get along.
