Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Originally posted by wldkos I have also noticed that apache from a tarball has a lot missing compared to an rpm.
Although it may appear that way, technically this statement is not quite the case. The apache packages usually include (or package mangers add) a set of mod_'s for apache, as well as being built to suport fun stuff like php and mysql.
While the source on its own doesn't have the bells and whistles, a source build that you nurture yourself not that difficult to patch and maintain. It's a bit of a learning curve but its rewards are worth it.
Distribution: Gentoo, Slackware 9.1, Slackware 8.1, Mac OS X (if it counts...)
I added --with-apxs2=/usr/local/httpd-2.0.45/support/apxs to my config line, and I get a new nice error message:
Configuring SAPI modules
checking for AOLserver support... no
checking for Apache 1.x module support via DSO through APXS... no
checking for Apache 1.x module support... no
checking for mod_charset compatibility option... no
checking for Apache 2.0 module support via DSO through APXS...
Sorry, I cannot run apxs. Possible reasons follow:
1. Perl is not installed
2. apxs was not found. Try to pass the path using --with-apxs2=/path/to/apxs
3. Apache was not built using --enable-so (the apxs usage page is displayed)
The output of /usr/local/httpd-2.0.45/support/apxs follows:
./configure: /usr/local/httpd-2.0.45/support/apxs: /usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: Permission denied
configure: error: Aborting
Perl is installed, i hav configured apache with --enable-so
and the directory to apache is correct
