error document

i spse this is more of an apache question but here goes anyway.

just want to do a custom error page.

my .htaccess is located in my cgi-bin and looks like:

Options ExecCGI Includes
ErrorDocument 400
ErrorDocument 404

then if i go to a page that doesnt exist say

i get the regular error page rather than the one I would expect give the above errordocument specs.

Did you change the ErrorDocument in httpd.conf ? I think that might solve your issue.

There should also be no line feed after the error number and you don't nee dthe full url - eg:
Options ExecCGI Includes
ErrorDocument 400 /errors/error.shtml
ErrorDocument 404 /errors/error.shtml
