  Unfortunately at this point I haven't had change to work through all 
the fcgi setups, and write guides like I've been planning.
 I'm held back on a very large project and having to pay bills :(

  Hopefully I've have chance in the next couple of months, but I can 
understand that's far off for you :(

I'd give lighttpd a go. Let us know if you manage to get a solution. If 
the worst come to the worst you could always dual boot Linux, or try cygwin.
