I've heard all the warnings, went against them fully and have been running php
w/apache 2 on a redhat9 machine for just under a year now.  It has yet to give
me any problems.

You could do this, but it would break everything listed above.  It would
definitely be cleaner if you removed the above mentioned rpms as well.  
I doubt
you need them all anyway.  Generally, i like to start with a lesser 
install than
the stock redhat and install the stuff i need from there.  It tends to lessen
the problems that you have run into above.
