Installing PHP5 and mod_php5 on SuSE 9.3 via terminal

I'm trying to install PHP5 and mod_php5 on a production SuSE 9.3 server. The server does not have X so my only access to yast (or anything) is via the terminal.

When I use the terminal yast I can see php5 version 5.1.2 and apache2-mod_php5 version 5.1.2 both as available.

When I attempt to install them though, I get an error: "Package php5-5.1.2-3.1.20060127.i586 was not found on the medium." and a similar error if I try to continue with the mod_php5 install.

Source of installation is: and there are no CDs/DVDs even listed as options.

If I just try to do updates through the same server with you they work fine, so I'm sure it's not a problem connecting to the server. This is probably the most perplexing part.

I've also tried downloading and installing RPMs from the internet and installing via:
rpm -ivh php-5.2.4-3.i386.rpm
Now the downloaded RPM is obviously a different (newer) version than the one in yast. But it gives me a bunch of dependency errors.
warning: php-5.2.4-3.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
        httpd-mmn = 20051115 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3
        php-cli = 5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3
        php-common = 5.2.4-3 is needed by php-5.2.4-3
        rtld(GNU_HASH) is needed by php-5.2.4-3
If I can get either of these versions to work that would be wonderful, I just need something. I'd really like to figure out the top one at some point since it's probably going to prevent me from installing *any* software through yast.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Let me know if there are additional details I can give that might be helpful. Thanks in advance.
