Got a problem that apache won't start.

Followed TID 10100478 to get things working.
This TID was ok, but I am very disappointed in that I need to give in every
time I start apache2 the password for the certificate.
Is this normal?
In a windows / netware environment I also do not have to give the password.
What can I do to make apache2 start automatically without asking for the
password ?
