FYI, I went back to the validator mailing list, to verify; it was running
last year under Win2000 Server, ActiveState Perl build 522, Apache 1.3.9
with few changes as well...

Not sure; mainly some aliasing, since I don't run the validator off my main
domain  (http://opus/validator/):

    Alias /validator  "w:/usr/local/validator/htdocs/"
    Alias /images     "w:/usr/local/validator/htdocs/images/"
    ScriptAlias /check    "w:/usr/local/validator/httpd/cgi-bin/check"

If I can get vhosting figured out, maybe I can move those into their own
vhost section and at least separate it from the rest of my Apache setup...

Um, tried that; despite having followed the validator for a few years now,
and possibly understanding some of what it does, my mind is still very much
a Windows-based unit, so some of the commands and setup options aren't quite
clear to me...  Maybe someone out there who has WinCVS working and reading
from the validator could email me with what you did to get things setup...
