Umm, your default root is under c:\Jigsaw\Jigsaw\WWW\. You have put your
cgi directory in a wrong place.

For Jigsaw, cgi-bin directory is nothing special compared to other web
servers. You might even want to create a default index.html file, otherwise
all your scripts would be seen when cgi-directory is requested directly.

Hope it helps,
