I'm unable to find the RPMs for Fedora or CentOS (which we're using) 
that correspond to 2.2.x.  

Well, actually, I found a src RPM, which is being compiled with options 
I need to customize (possibly via rpmbuild) - I'm from FreeBSD, so RPM 
is very new ;-)

It has several dependencies.

Suggestion(s) welcomed.

We already have httpd-2.0 installed on the designated system, which is 
why I asked.

I believe our goal is to utilize the mod_mem_cache on the front-end 
image servers.

What particular problems have been observed with mod_mem_cache?
