so, is it passing a 404 header?

wait, it is (using http://www.delorie.com/web/headers.html):
  HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
  Date: Thu, 01 Feb 2001 15:31:10 GMT
  Server: Apache/1.3.14 (Unix) @PACKAGE@/@VERSION@
  Page-Completion-Status: Normal
  Connection: close
  Content-Type: text/html

is that a problem for any browsers?
