egroupware folder permissions

I'm trying to get Egroupware to install right. I'm using Fedora 3 and mysql.

I installed using the installer and when I start the setup I keep getting the same 2 errors.

Checking file-permissions of phpgwapi/images for writable by the webserver: apache/root drwxrwxr-x
phpgwapi/images is not writable by the webserver !!!

Checking file-permissions of fudforum for writable by the webserver: apache/root drwxrwxr-x
fudforum is not writable by the webserver !!!

So what I've done so far is:
1. Confirmed that the apache server user and group are both apache from httpd.conf and the the user id is 48.

2. Confirmed that the httpd process is running as user id 48, doing ps -A -l

3. Tried to chown and chgrp every permutation of root and apache. Regarless I keep getting the error in the same spot. The only thing that changes is the part where is currently says apache/root. That changes to reflect what I have set as the owner/group.

4. Tried to chmod 777 the two directories, but that gives me additional errors saying that they shouldn't be world readable, in addition to the same 2 errors saying that the webserver can't write to them.

Thanks for any support,

We did a ps -aux | grep httpd to see who was running httpd, found it to be "nobody" and changed ownership to "nobody"
Dont know if that helps
