Remove apache2, keep apache 1.3

Hi, I installed Red Hat linux 9, but I opted to not install apache 2 package when I installed RH. For some reason the apachectl file is still located in /sbin/. I have since installed apache 1.3 and it is located in /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl . Is there some way to safely remove apache2 from /sbin so that there is no confusion in the future?

If I do
rpm -qa | grep apache
it returns nothing. But if I do
rpm-qa | grep httpd
it returns:
Can I just get rid of apache2 (httpd) by doing:
rpm -e 'httpd'
Is apache2 installed under the name httpd and apache 1.3 is installed under apachectl? I am also assuming nothing comes up when I grep for apache because I installed apache 1.3 from source (tar.gz), not as an rpm. I am new, so be gentle!
