I think this is the main portion of your post. The docs on are generic 
documents and does not take into consideration how a distribution may package 
php. (This is very very common in Linux).

For FC5, simply run yum install php-mysql. That will install all 3 mysql 
interfaces - legacy mysql, current mysqli and object oriented pdo_mysql.
