Thanks for your response. No I did not install a pre-compiled
binary. I got the tar ball and compiled it myself. By the way, I am
running PHP version 4.1.1.
Thanks for all the help!

Hm. That's very strange. Did you install someone else's pre-compiled
binary? I know that my 4.1.0 source install ended up with
register_globals = on by default, and I had to manually change this to
off. But that was over a month ago.
There are others on this list more knowledgeable than I about the
default setup of the php.ini file. In any event Teresa, you are much
better off learning PHP with register_globals = off because it will get
you used to using $_* arrays, as the old globalized means of accessing
variables has been deprecated. So don't change anything. :)
