Heh. Computers are tricky things. Sometimes our eyes NEED to glaze over. 
I'll politely ignore the finer points for now, and return later when I've 
got the basics working.

Actually, I know it'll be a different port, but the first adventure was 
creating a self-certified certificate for testing purposes (the final 
secret was, the script is in the mod_ssl SOURCE package)

The next adventure is actually using the shiny new certificate, and I kept 
seeing VH's mentioned in all the ssl and https doco.

You've all been great helps so far. I hope I haven't inspired a flame-war 
amongst yourselves. The help here is quite speedy and of high quality. 
Congratulate yourselves, and please, buy yourselves a beer on my behalf.
