yet another problem

Hi, linux community
i'm having problems configuring Apache in SuSE 7.3 to use locally as a testing tool.
i've configured the httpd.conf according to the manual to allow cgi scripts, chmoded 755 the /home/*/public_html/ and the .cgi file as well.
.html files are browsable OK, but on .cgi call i get the error : ...Options ExecCGI is off in this directory:...
Could anyone help
Thanks in advance

Mmmmkay... Let me paraphrase the error message for you: in your httpd.conf, in the <Directory /home/*/public_html> block do you have a line that says "Options ExecCGI" ?
