Hi,

I'm trying to install the latest version of Ruby to work with a
just-newly installed Apache 2.2 module on my x86 Fedora Core 5 Linux
machine.  I read
(http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/RailsOnFedora) that
mod_fastcgi is required, but when I download, copy the appropriate
Makefile and try to make, I get errors (see below if you're really
interested).  I also notice that the latest version of mod_fastcgi is
dated 2004.  Is this truly required or can I skip this step?

Thanks, - Dave
