first Fedora 8 is no longer supported , and has had NO security updates since Jan 7 2009
fedora 10 is current and fedora 11 will be released in a few weeks .
my normal shpeel is ...
For the first 12 to 24 installs of the Apache stack BUILD and install it BY HAND .Do not use a precompiled binary ( like the fedora rpm's ) for apache ,Mysql,php,phpmyadmin,awstates,perl,...
LEARN how to install and configure every config file first ( httpd.conf, my.ini, php.conf,...)
then use the prebuilt as a time saver ( save about 30 min. )
It is VERY easy to missconfigure the apache stack and have some hacker turn it into a ZOMBIE
