sorry for top posting

i install rt 3.8 on centos last night in about 2 hours

make sure you have httpd-devel installed (this will install apr-utils
wget latest fastcgi
cp Makefile.AP2 Makefile
change top_dir to /usr/lib/httpd in Makefile
make install
cp /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_fascgi.so to /etc/httpd/modules
create a fastcgi.conf file in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ in it should be the 
LoadModule directive
restart httpd

let me know if any issues
