  Oh... I forgot to mention. 
  When I click on index.html it comes up fine and then when I run the basic application 
  a black windows cmd window apears after I answer yes to "Do you want to execute..."
  The line in the black windows cmd window flashes by so fast.. but I think it says
  the same thing as when I execute directly from windows Cmd.
  "This script can only be used to decode form results and
should be initiated as a CGI process via a httpd server."
  when I bring up index.html by typeing this at the web browser
  "http://localhost/workshop/index.html" and click the basic aplication, 
  it does not query me to see if I want to execute mapserv... and
  nothing apparently happens.  
  Any assistance or insight is greatly appreciated!

    I installed mS4W on Windows XP Home with the following software installed.  
  Apache server
  Derby Plug in for Eclipse (java database)
  JRE 5.0
  New to the java scripting world, and decided to install the Itasca demo. 
  It is installed in C:/ms4w/apache/htdocs/workshop/index.html etc.  
  This is what I have for index.html in the demo

       <form name="demo" method="GET" action="c:/ms4w/apache/cgi-bin/mapserv.exe" onSubmit="submit_form()">
        <input type="hidden" name="layer" value="lakespy2">
        <input type="hidden" name="layer" value="dlgstln2">
        <input type="hidden" name="zoomsize" value=2>
        <input type="hidden" name="map" value="c:/ms4w/apps/workshop/itasca.map">
        <input type="hidden" name="program" value="c:/ms4w/apache/cgi-bin/mapserv.exe">
        <input type="hidden" name="root" value="c:/ms4w/apache/htdocs/workshop"> 
        <input type="hidden" name="map_web_imagepath" value="c:/ms4w/apache/htdocs/workshop/temp/ms_temp">
        <input type="hidden" name="map_web_imageurl" value="c:/ms4w/apache/htdocs/workshop/temp">
  These are values in the c:/ms4w/apache/conf/httpd.conf file
  ServerRoot "c:/ms4w/apache"
  Listen 80
  ServerAdmin admin at local.domain
  DocumentRoot "c:/ms4w/apache/htdocs"
  <Directory "c:/ms4w/Apache/htdocs">
  This is the value I put into the Itasca.map file: 
  WMS_ONLINERESOURCE http://localhost/workshop/index.html
  Put cgi-bin onto the WINDOWS PATH statement.  
  Also moved the workshop files around to various directories. 
  Made various windows folders shareable on the network. 
  When I click on the initialize (basic application) button am queried if I want to run 
  C:/ms4w/apache/cgi-bin/mapserv.exe ?
  I answer yes a coulpe times, but then *nothing* happens? 
  What is wrong with my configuration?
