To help get you started you can use Scott Raney's demo stack for making 
a simple web server, mchttpd:

<http://www.revjournal.com/metacard/mchttpd.zip>

Andre's variants are much more feature-rich, but Raney's mchttp may be a 
useful starting point because of its simplicity, designed as a demo 
rather than a complete production environment.

Once you get the hang of how it works, you could tailor it for your 
needs or move up to Andre's libs for more features.
