[Seaside] How to deploy Seaside VisualWorks behing Apache

I have a VW-seaside application which I want to run on a dedicated 
remote server with Fedora 5, Cpanel and Apache 1.3.

I stripped my image to headless (avoiding the X console error) and this 
responds nicely on my localhost XP box and starts correctly on the 
remote server.

According to the Seaside Faq: "You can run Seaside under VisualWorks 
behind Apache using either the the CGI gateway or the CGI Perl 
Interface." it furhter indicates numerous reasons why this does not work 
out of the box under 7.3.

Is this still true under 7.5 ?.

If I understood well this server subject brings me back to the Webserver 
config documentation on page 87 which gives a sample installation for 
Linux Apache stating:

To install the gateway for use with Apache 1.3 running under RedHat 7.1:
1 Login as root.
2 Copy the Linux CGI gateway (/waveserver/waverelays/cgi/linux86/cgi2vw) 
to the /var/www/cgi-bin directory.

As I hardly understand anything here I try to follow the documentation 
for as far as I can.

My problem now is that I don't have a /var/www/cgi-bin directory, so 
where should I copy this <relay> file ?
