It sounds to me like Slackware may be the best distribution for your
situation. You may also want to try Gentoo <http://www.gentoo.org/>.

If you want something like Red Hat 7.x, you could use Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 2.1ES or AS. And if you don't want to pay that kind of money, you
could use CentOS-2 <http://www.centos.org/>. RHEL 2.1ES, 2.1AS, and
CentOS-2 don't hit end-of-life until sometime in 2007, and they still
use Apache 1.3. (Or you could use Red Hat 7.2 or 7.3 and update it with
Fedora Legacy.)

In any case, it sounds like Fedora is not the right distribution for
your situation. It sounds like you need something that doesn't push the
envelope the way that Fedora does.
