I tried this about a year ago.  The only way I found to get it to work 
(on a test server) was to create new directory (I named it rss) in 
koha/opac/htdocs and access it with http://mycatalog.com/rss/file.xml.

> http://mycatalog.com/cgi-bin/koha/lastAcquired.xml (results in a blank page that has only the words "not found" in the upper left)

I apologize for that, but please know I invested a couple hours before asking.  Thanks in advance if anyone has tips as to where to place the files, and then, how to access them.
