Question PHP integration with Apache problem

I have problems integrating PHP with Apache, both of which are new ground for me, unfortunately the teach yourslef book I bought doesnt quiet relate to my installation and so im in a bit of a muddle. I installed from rpm,s. Ive done alot of work towards sorting my problem but im getting knowhere fast. Some of the directories the book the teachyourself book uses eg. /usr/local, are empty, so the examples and help are not helping me.

Ive run into this # cp php.ini-recomended /usr/local/lib/php.ini but in pretty sure this is going to be the wrong location on my installation. However the next line in the book troubles me more.

#cp libs/ /usr/local/apache2/modules again a problem with where things are on my installation. eg. im not using usr/local and I have no apache2 directory that I can find. I also dont have

On looking for ive found this seems to be normally derived from some configuration using apxs??? However I didnt install from binaries using config, make, make install. Because of mandriva rpm functionality I decided to use rpms.

I installed apache and it is up and running ok. Server version: Apache/2.2.3 (Mandriva Linux / PREFORK - 1mdv2007.0), running on mandriva 2007.

The book I bought "Sam's teach your self, PHP, Mysql and Apache" tells me I need to make sure is loaded as a module in httpd.conf. Obviously I cant do this. I Searched round my system and I found in /usr/lib.

I suspect this is generated from the package libphp5_common5_5.1.6-1.6mdv2007.0, is this what I need to put in httpd.conf?

Mandriva tells me that apache-mod_php-5.1.6 -2mdv2007.0 is used to integrate php into apache but obviously with no module being loaded via httpd.conf this is not happening. Tested by putting a .php script into /var/www. No luck.

Ive spent hours on this searching the net and getting knowhere. Any help is much appreciated.

ok it seems I need this in httpd.conf the question i now have is this. the file is symbolic linked in httpd/extramodules so do i do the .conf entry like this? LoadModule php5_module extramodules/ or do I move the file into httpd/modules? What is correct?
