I would also recommend you using yum. But I think php, mysql and apache 
should have been already installed. You can check like this
as root

#rpm -qa | less

then type "/" to search for mysql or php etc...
BTW php needs a security update which has not come down the pipe yet. To 
update your installation type

#yum check-update
#yum update

A step by step install instruction for moodle is at 
http://moodle.org/doc/ under apache,mysql, php. Choose redhat distro
Good luck.
