welcome, my friend to rpm-hell. after a month of trying i was not able to install php and apache on my box (properly). (btw, that was about 1 year ago, i am MUCH better now).
I believe its about time you switched to gentoo. 'Why?' you ask. Simple: this is how you install php on gentoo:
emerge php (wait a bit)
emerge apache mod_php (wait a bit)
/etc/init.d/apache start (you have a running apache with php)
Ps. about your problem, though, go to php.net (php home page) and there are fairly good instructions on installing php there, even for RH. Do not forget mod_php module for apache or it will not work.
