It sounds like either the link program (the program apache runs, which
passes the request off to interchange and prints out the result) isn't named
right, or the cgi-bin directory or uri isn't where you think it is.  Check
that /usr/local/apache2/cgi-bin/(your link program's name, usually the same
as the catalog name) exists, and that the ScriptAlias line in apache's
configuration actually points from /cgi-bin to /usr/local/apache2/cgi-bin.

I won't email you directly--mostly because the list archives wouldn't be as
useful if everybody had half a conversation about their problem and
magically got a solution, and partly because i don't like email...but also
partly because your message had no e-mail address to send to.  :)  So if you
need further info, reply to the list.
