The biggest problem for me were the php rpms not being compiled --with-mysql.

am a bit of a newbie. I finally had success with these rpms:


There may be some other dependencies, try them and rpm will let you know.
If you use webmin as much as I do, use SSL. This created some additional 
hurdles, but it's worth it. I use SSL for all browser related administration
