I had two problems with FC3 and Apache/XSP
1. The FC3 apache distributed with FC3 is restricted by SELinux to 
certain directories, so for example, I could not serve files from the 
/home/...  areas. Disabling SE linux fixed this.
2. FC3 apache httpd.conf file set a username for apache to run under 
(See httpd.conf entries for "Group=apache"  and  "User=apache"). This 
prevents XSP from running in its usual configuration because it cannot 
get permissions on the /tmp/... file that it creates for a socket. 
Therefore, set the Group and User to the Apache defaults (Which I think 
are "Group=", "User=nobody" ???? please check) then XSP starts fine.

Hope this helps
