htsearch in the cgi-bin directory, I get this error msg:

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable

Please contact the server administrator, root@localhost and inform them of
the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.

More information about this erxror may be available in the server error log.

I'm running the Apache web server on Redhat 6.1 (x86 machine).
