Id love to.  However, this is the latest version available for this 
platform without installing manually.  I dont want to break any 
dependencies and yum complains if i try to install a newer version than 
what it sees available.

This seems to be exactly what is going on.  I have multiple isos which 
are over 3gb in size.  I tried renaming it to something else (.txt) and 
it still hides it so i dont believe it to be related to the extension of 
the file.

Thanks for the infomation.  I'll bring this over to the centos list to 
see how i can upgrade apache without causing problems.

Thanks again
