With all the messages in this wandering thread, I've gotten lost. Matt, can you explain what you have in mind again, please?

    Apache is fairly small, a complete install of Apache2 is less then 4MB I
    think.  We should probably just use Apache2.

    PHP5 looks very cool but it does depend on Python and a number of other
    things, so it takes a lot of CD space.  Maybe we could start with PHP4,
    which is also only around 4MB installed.  PHP5 could be an upgrade path
    for us down the line.

    The more I research this option, the more I like it.  Small, compact,
    easy to run, portable, multiple display options, remote install
    capability... it seems to take care of all the issues.
