I *appear* to have everything running. However, when I try to
access the script tiny-perl.fcgi I get permission denied errors.
If I go to /tmp and change
  srwxr-xr-x  1 root            0 Dec  2 23:09 OM_WS_1.6097=
  srwxr-xr-x  1 nobody          0 Dec  2 23:09 OM_WS_1.6097=
the process hangs or stalls.

Does anyone know what is going on here???? I assume this is a
quick fix. It may have something to do with the server forking
off processes as nobody, but the fcgi-app processes are owned
by root? Maybe thats the problem?

Any help is much appreciated!!!!

Server NCSA/1.5.2a
Perl5.00307 with FCGI-0.26
