hi guy,

thanks.  your suggestions fixed the printing problem, and all my  
students will get to take their tests tomorrow!  ;-)

as per your questions:

1) i was suffering from the mysterious "httpd not found" problem  
after trying to upgrade to 2.1.3.  so i did

yum remove apache

followed by

yum install apache


yum install LONCAPA-prerequisites

but i did not pay attention to the backup warning regarding the  
apache config file, because i thought that if i went back and ran


all would be put back together properly.  but alas - not so.

2) yes the warning about the script alias is there, as is another  

**** ERROR **** /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf has an overlapping  
definition of DocumentRoot (it is incorrectly set to "/var/www/html").
This conflicts with loncapa_apache.conf.

should i do something to correct that as well?

thanks again for your help!
