It's not MS-Windows, it's just Vista. Vista was designed and distributed
for use as a home entertainment center. It was loaded with DRM and other
restrictions to entice the RIAA and MPAA to use it as their primary
platform for distributing music and movies, respectively. That pretty
much broke it for any serious uses.

If you can't avoid MS-Windows, at least upgrade to XP.

I understand, but that's not an option. I am not interested in getting
a Linux vs. Windows fight here, let's just say that I am stuck with

Now, somthing's gotta be seriously wrong here. I have tried now 4 or 5 
different scripts for the photo gallery that I am trying to implement
NONE of them has worked. I have enabled all extensions and loaded all 
modules in Apache and php -- still nothing.

I can't believe that the Apache Society out there simply ignores the 80%
so that use Windows. Can anybody point me to a group that deals with
(PHP) on Windows?  Thanks.
