REV CGIs

After the recent articles in the REV newsletter I have been trying to  
learn how to use REV in CGI calls. I have had some success on my local  
machine using revHTTP and am now trying to figure out how to get this  
on my remote server. The server is on MacHighway and they have set up  
a cgi-bin for me.

  I am wondering which engine do I upload and how can I test if it is  
working? Will the unix engine named rev work on Apache? Or should I  
upload the OSX app?

Anyone have experience with this??

I uploaded the echo.mt file and get this back:
http://www.lazyriversoftware.com/cgi-bin/echo.mt
$SCRIPT_NAME = /cgi-bin/echo.mt $REQUEST_URI = /cgi-bin/echo.mt  
$REQUEST_METHOD = GET $SERVER_PROTOCOL = HTTP/1.1 $GATEWAY_INTERFACE =
