Case Study: Increasing YSlow Score 30+ Points in Less Than One Hour

Ever since a client of mine asked me to look into the Firebug add-on YSlow, I've been interested in using it to increase performance on my Drupal (version 5) web sites. Wim Leer's recent posting about improving Drupal performance inspired me to take action to see what kind of improvements I could make.

Before I get into the details, please don't confuse me with an Apache guru. I know enough to modify various settings in an httpd.conf or an .htaccess file, but only after I've done my due diligence to make sure I'm not going to irrevocably screw things up.
