I was looking for help in how to install them with Apache, not using the installations that come with RH 8.
May I ask why you do not want to use the RH packages? When you install them from the RedHat cds there is no configuring to be done. Just go to:
Select Apache, MySQL, and PHP packages and press UPDATE. It will then ask you for the appropriate cd(s). Once this is done you are ready to go!
