Hello Brian,
	May I know what platform are you running on? It seem that there 
is some problem on Linux. Initially, I was unable to actually compile the 
fastcgi server on Linux, the data type "struct timeval"  referred in the 
file fcgi.c seems not to exists in any of the header files?!?! Then I 
found that it exists in <linux/time.h> (linux2.0.0), so including this 
file make compilation go smoothly...
	When I started up the server, I discovered that all the processes 
pertaining to fastcgi are all owned by root?!?! (I set the owner of the 
httpd process to be someone else) After that, I restarted the  server by 
letting root be the owner of the httpd process, but when I tried to 
invoke the fastcgi, the client side would just hang !!
	So can anyone enlighten me what is wrong? I seem to remember that 
httpd 1.5 has some problem changing the ownership of the httpd process.
