Typically everything on a unix or *nix system is case sensitive. I don't know if apache has a way of turning it off or not. I imagine the documentation would say so if it did. You can find the docs for your version on the Apache-HTTPD Website.

Yeah mod_speling does this, and its probably loaded by default
LoadModule speling_module                modules/
you just need to add this to your config file
