If you want to use the 2.0.x version that you installed in /usr/local/apach2,
yes, I suggest doing this so that you are only dealing with one installation.

Right. That's the one you want to keep.

I don't know about the nodeps flag. I'd just remove all of it. If you change
your mind later, it no big deal to re-install it from the cdrom. To remove RPMs
use 'rpm -e <package name>'.

Use rpm to remove it. It'll shut it down and delete it from your system.
Then start the other one with '/usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start'.
If you want this to run when you reboot the computer put this command in
the file /etc/rc.local.
