Redhat and PHP 4.3.2

I want to install a software package on my server that requires PHP 4.3.2. I only run the RH PHP that comes with, which is 4.2.2. So I'm wondering, how does upgrading PHP work? Can I just download the current version from the site and transfer it over? I belive I have to compile it.. still checking. But would there be any conflict between the old and the new? Also, I usually get the updates from Red Hat, would that void those out when it concerns PHP?

Major Newb question.

4.3.2 is not available for redhat in rpm form so you will need to compile it. There is documentation here:

You can see what packages you have relating to php installed using:
rpm -qa | grep php

You can uninstall a package using:
rpm -e PACKAGE
