You're missing a key ingredient: "ScriptAlias", which tells Apache what files under what directories should be executed as CGI files.

ScriptAlias is crucial to use when you're not going to use the AddHandler directives. I'd modify your above <Directory> to:

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/Users/kniles/Sites/cgi-bin"
<Directory "/Users/kniles/Sites/cgi-bin">
AllowOverride None
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

    I was wondering how to do this too. Thanks!!

    I'd also like to say how great this series has been - I knew absolutely NOTHING about apache or unix before reading these articles, and now I'm configuring my own web server! Thanks for making this stuff approachable.
