Okay.  That's a better start.  But I still have a question: Do you get the
MSIE "friendly" error page, or do you get the Apache canned error response.
If the former, make sure that error.html is "big enough" (pad it with a
bunch of space if necessary).  If the latter, where in httpd.conf have you
placed the ErrorDocument directive?  What does the error log say?

If this is a publically-accessible site, you could give the URL so that we
could test it.
