"Why are we here?", is also a simple question :-)

You can install any version of apache anywhere you like. You control
where apache goes by the "--prefix" switch at the configure stage, e.g.

	./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2 

will install the httpd binary in /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd, the
config file in /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf and so on.

Note that the default for apache2 is /usr/local/apache2 while for
apache1.3 it is /usr/local/apache. So even if you just blindly install
both, they won't collide.

The first step in all of this is to uunpack the source and read the
INSTALL file. Start at and
follow the instructions.
