removing old version of apache?

Hi all:
I have a RHL 9.0 with everything from CDs installed. I beleive the apache is RPM version. Now i want to install the new source version of apache. Please help me with the following. How can i remove the old version, or how can i update from the old RPM to the new SOURCE version ?
Also, how can i configure the RHL to use the new version instead of the old one? I tried to install the new one without removing the old one, and i doesnt seem to work.

Thanks You !

try this command to remove apache:

rpm -e apache
or try this command on the new rpm file to upgrade the current rpm (i'm using an example filename):

rpm -U apache-3.2.1-i386.rpm

Hi Mr. win32sux:

When I type "ps aux", i can see the process belong to apache.
However, when i run "rpm -q -a | grep -i apache", nothing is returned.
Also, when i type "rpm -e apache", an error msg said that "package apache is not installed".

By the way, there is some 'Apache Configuration' feature provided by the x-window. I mean i can add the user to the apache group.

I am very confused, please help me out please. Thanks.
