Redhat 9 and Apache/MySQL/PHP

Hello all,

I recently installed Redhat 9 for a little webserver project. I have been having problems, but have kept learning and fixing, until now. I opted not to install MySQL 3.23 from the Redhat installation cds, and get the newest version (4.0.17) and install that instead. I downloaded the rpm file and installed it, no problem. I downloaded the rpm file for PHP and installed it, no problem. But the two wouldn't work together. So I did some research and found that I needed php-mysql installed to use the two together. I tried, and didn't find the right version, so I just installed it directly from the installation cds. This removed MySQL 4.0.17 and installed MySQL 3.23 and php-mysql. Now I can't remove MySQL 3.23 because of a dependency, perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 and I can't remove perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 because of the dependency to MySQL 3.23.

Can anyone help me with this problem? If so, can anyone also help me with getting PHP 4 and MySQL 4.0.17 working together? I am really close to just reinstalling Redhat 9 (it would be the third time) and trying from scratch. Should I get away from using rpm files and start ./configuring?
