Warning! This is wrong!

If you give a local path, it does NOT send a 404/403 message (if you
happen to use Microsoft Explorer it's really simple to check, 302's result
in the error message being showed, 403/404 get a Microsoft stupid
message[tm])

However!
ErrorDocument 404 http://test.com/Lame_excuses/not_found.html
ErrorDocument 403 http://test.com/Lame_excuses/not_found.html

Will do the trick. (it becomes a 302)
