No, mod_php is not part of Apache. It is a seperate project. You will 
need to recompile PHP against your new Apache install. This may or may 
not interfere with your existing PHP install. You can set the isntall 
prefix when installing php just like with Apache to avoid this, or just 
remove the old PHP altogether. Compiling PHP is no picnic though. Here's 
a tip - make sure the *-devel RPM's are installed for all the features 
you add to PHP.
For instance, you are most likely going to need IMAP support in php. 
This means you need the imap-devel RPM installed.

You might want to just look at getting the latest updates for RedHat9. 
I'm sure that they have updated their Apache & PHP packages since RH9 
came out.

Good Luck,
