Do you have to share the index file with other versions of swish?

2.4.0 is just about out -- I was just testing 2.4.0-pr4 on Windows and
filtering is much easier when spidering.  Since you are indexing .asp
files I'd think you would want to spider.

I think on Win2K you can just say:

  SwishProgParameters default http://localhost/index.html

And then run
  swish-e -S prog -c config

and it will index your word and pdf files.

  IndexContents HTML* .pdf

That says to use the HTML* parser for pdf files.  (but you don't need
that if using because will see that the pdf was
converted to text/html and tell swish-e to use the HTML parser.)

I have to run, but let me know if you want to try 2.4.0.  Otherwise,
I'll look at your email more in detail.
