LAMP - Fedora 4

P: n/a
I'm new to linux and I'm trying to set up a LAMP server using Fedora 4

I installed all the relevant packages and have Apache serving static pages
ok, however I am unable to access MySql. PHPinfo() tells me that PHP was
built using "--without mysql" in the configure command.

Is there a logical reason why they would do this?

Will all PHP packages be built like this - how will I know without going
through an install?

Whats the best way get it installed - I assume I download the source and
build it myself?

If thats the case what directory will I install it to - I would like to
install it to the same directory it is now but I dont know where that is.
How do I find out?

5.0.4 is what came with Fedora4 but if I build a replacement I will use the
latest release - should I uninstall the current install before upgrading.

I have read SElinux causes problems with LAMP servers Has anyone experienced
this?

Does anyone recommend/reject any Linux flavours for a production server?

TIA
