Sorry, i have no experience with RedHat or Apache 1.3, but the general
recipe should be the same as described in the howto.

FWIW, I had *exactly* the same problem with the fcgi constant on OsX.
Even stranger, I have two macs with what I *think* are identical setups
and I DON'T have the problem on one of them! Probably why I switched to
mongrel at least for the time being... :-)
Very frustrating, to say the least.

Makefile.AP2, but with apache 133 what make file should i use.

sry bout the last post. noob mistake. i still haven't had any luck
though. on thing i did try in your tutorial was running the
dispatch.fcgi script from the shell line. i get the following errors:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-1.3.0/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:112:in
`const_missing': uninitialized constant RailsFCGIHandler (NameError)
        from
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-1.3.0/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:120:in
`const_missing'
        from ../newtest/public/dispatch.fcgi:24

based on that, can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong? is it my
configuration? installation maybe?
