Hi all
I am a new user to ms4w . I extracted the package to c:/ms4w/ms4w/apache and 
etc . But i tried running apache.exe from command prompt like this
c:/> ms4w/ms4w/apache/bin/apache.exe but i got the following error .

ServerRoot must be valid a directory
Error at line 57 of apache/conf/httpd.conf file :

  The machine is w2000 and the IIS was running so assuming there is port 
conflict between IIS and Apache I stopped IIS and tried the same but the 
same error persists !!! So I changed the httpd.conf file's Listen port from 
80 to 8080 but the same problem again !!!
What is the solution ? and next I saw the folder apache/htdocs and 
apache/cgi-bin both containing
files like phpinfo.php , phpinfo_mapscript36.php and 
phpinfo_mapscript_40.php and the next folder containing mapserv36.exe and 
mapserv40.exe . So these four files are supposed to be used for customozing 
our own web  mapping application with MapServer right ? and i dont see any 
MapServer.dll which is widely talked about by the .. So Is 
it that the ms4w uses MapScript API s ? What is teh difference between 
usuing mapserver.dll and mapscript .php ?
could any one elaborate on this and the general direction i should proceed 
with ? My ultimate aim is to render maps based on the TIGER files . Could 
any one shed some light on this ?
With regards and thanks
