I have apache 2.0 running on Windows XP. Is there any need to run Gzip on it? Is there already compression built in? Thanks.

I have a Foxserv distro running on Win2K and it doesn't include mod_gzip, just some AddEncoding directives, a RedHat 8 Linux distro is similar. Both use Apache 2 and gzip seems to be built-in. There is an external mod_deflate module referenced in the Apache 2 docs that appears to offer additional functionality.
