Can you tell me the line you used to configure gold and what version it 
is (I am attempting to determine the cgi-bin-dir that Gold installed to).

Can you grep Alias out of your httpd.conf file to show me how you have 
that configured? Aklso, the Directory block for that cgi-bin subdir?

The best thing to do is create a small cgi-bin program in your cgi-bin 
directory and see if you can access it via your browser and troubleshoot 
from there.
