Nope! It's not the same.

Someone else will correct me if I'm wrong here, but you have to set the
server up so that it is accessible server wide. (Well, maybe not 'have to',
but I don't think that you can easily set it up within a users own space.)

The cgi-bin are comes into play for the users catalogs, and is not set up
until after you have the server up and running.

Now, HERE is a major problem! You have to have version 5.005 or higher, and
during the installation of the server, it will go out and get the latest and
greatest and install it - and for that you need root access.
