Thanks Mark

That is what I was asking....if it will install and run without trouble. I 
plan on uprading it.   Currently I have the following Apache version 
installed and running.

# httpd -v
Server version: Apache/2.2.8 (Unix)
Server built:   Jan 28 2008 06:24:44

# rpm -qa|grep http

# cat redhat-release
Fedora release 8 (Werewolf)

# uname -m

What, specifically, do you mean by "is supported"?

If you mean, "will it compile and run without trouble, compared to other 
versions of Apache HTTP Server?" then the answer is "yes, it should".

If you mean, "can I ask questions about it here?" then the answer is 

If you mean "is this version distributed by the Fedora Project for 
Fedora 8, and will they update and maintain a package for it?" then the 
answer is "no".  In fact, Fedora 8 itself is no longer supported by the 
Fedora Project:  Fedora 8 reached its end of life on January 7th, 2009. 
If you want to run a version of Fedora that is supported by the Fedora 
Project then you should use Fedora 16.
