I never took my computer in to the shop except to install memory.
I think it's less than $20.00 to install and test.
Can't remember if I did this because I run an IBM

Don't have DNS.
What is your problem with apache. It comes with RH9.
As su - root then type which httpd
If not. Install from CD.
Apache is only tricky when you have multiple installs
And yes it is installed in an /sbin by default, so only root can see it ...
