Hi Ted:

I am on the same boat - a Lively beginner working on my "personal"
local install. While I think/hope after the next round I will have a
localhost version working, (some of the steps have been discussed) I
wonder if short-term best approach for newcomers would be to create a
virtual machine image (e.g for VirtualBox) that has all Lively
installed and working, that would remove the pain of configuring
Apache+webdav+svn (etc). (Although I plan to end up writing an
automated installer that, if finished will only work on one Linux
