I've tried ubuntu - which installs fine, however I am getting the  
same error trying to install Apache:

dpkg: error processing apache (--configure)
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 10
Errors were encountered while processing:apache
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

This install is not running any version of Apache so I guess that  
wasn't the reason it was failing with Debian Testing.

The reason I need Apache 1.3 rather than 2 is that, as a web  
developer, I've yet to encounter a live server running Apache 2 and  
I'd rather keep our dev environment similar to the boxes we go live  
on. When I'm finding that most hosting services are running Apache 2  
we'll upgrade.
