Upgrading fedora default software installation

I'm currently using fedora core 1. It has many different software that comes with it: example apache web server, openoffice etc.

Can someone let me know how to find out the version number for these software? and how can I upgrade to a new version software?

u may prefer yum or up2date programs to update them. they can download newer version of these sofwares from fedora's update site and install them automaticly. if u wanna see the version of some program try "rpm -qa | grep program_name"

apache is called as httpd in fedora and redat.

[root@linux mesut]# rpm -qa|grep httpd
