I know that I just saw something like this last week on the list, but can't 
find it now.  Anyway, I have just installed PHP 4.2.1 on my WinXP laptop 
running Apache 1.3.23.  phpinfo() is still showing 4.1.2.  I think I 
remember something about a dll that needs to be deleted or something like 
that.  Can anybody let me know how to fix this?
