Thanks for the information. That's completely new to me. I went with the 
documentation at apache.org and even the 2.2 documentation mentions only 
dbmmanage. And 2.2 again has new directives and completely new module names in 
this area over 2.0. Argh :-(
I just found out that after upgrading to Apache 2.0 all the AuthDBUserFile 
stuff stopped to work and once I had found out the correct directives and 
correct DB type to use the databases again I didn't find dbmmanage. In the 
mean time I copied it over from a Suse machine and it still works fine in 
conjunction with Apache 2.
And htdbm indeed is on the system and it even works the way it's okay for me. 
I just need to add the database type. I also read the thread from January now 
and am warned, but it probably won't affect my usage. Thanks again!
