This is closing a question I started on March 25th. On March 27th at
about 5:00AM (sitting at my computer)I couldn't catch my breath, went to

http://linuxmafia.com/faq/Security/php.html - I pretty much copied &
pasted every tip on the page & now my download speed seems to be
completely unaffected with Apache running, my upload speed is about 1/3
as fast with Apache running, but I think I can live with that...it used
to be about 1/50.
So, Many (belated) Thanks to Andrew and Robert for their suggestions,
and to Rick Moen for providing the Knowledge Base.
P.S. I still feel like I was stabbing blindly at the problem, & just
lucky. I'd still like to be able to analyze the system/network/Apache
and find something that points to my php configuration.
P.P.S. If anybody has any ideas on how to improve my upload speed, it'd
