Mysql and php are both bundled with that ancient version of Red Hat if I 
remember correctly. You can just install them off the cd using RPM.

Anyway you should definitely get a more recent version of RH. However 
you probably do not want fedora which as a I understand does not include 
mysql (they say it's not because of the license issues .....)
