  <P><FONT size=2>I've got an E450 with Apache, but not the rest of your 
  list.&nbsp; It works rather well.&nbsp; Just install Apache, make a couple of 
  changes in the config, and it's all good.<BR><BR>Don't get hung up on hooking 
  a modem to the 450 - you could put it anywhere, and simply use email to 
  deliver notification to the email system.&nbsp; I've successfully used an 
  alias in /etc/aliases to redirect email to a script.&nbsp; If you need to know 
  how that's done, let me know.&nbsp; It would allow you to put the modem 
  somewhere you're more familiar with, and send messages to it from the 
  450.<BR><BR>Ralph Mitchell<BR><BR><BR><BR>-----Original Message-----<BR>From:
