[lug] Apache Proxy and Apache server at startup

I have 2 questions regarding Apache server version 1.3.11.

I have Apache Proxy installed on Linux. The proxy web cacheing works fine,
when I access the web from a 95/NT box. Most revisted pages are immediately
fetched from the Apache Proxy's cache. This is certainly not true when I access
these same pages from the hosting Linux system. Each revist is fetched from the
site. I have configured browsers exactly alike.

Any idea why this is happening?

One other problem I have noticed is the slow startup of Apache at boot up time.
In the startup scripts, I have the following lines:

if [ -x /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl ]; then
  echo "Starting Apache Web Server"
  /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

The system waits for about 5 minutes before moving on to the next instruction.
I do not have any "sleep" commands in this script. Once the system has started,
if I do any of the following commands:

  /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl stop
  /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start
  /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl restart

Apache responds rightaway. If anyone is experiencing this same problem, please let
me know how you resolved this problem.

Thank you in advance.
