I take it you were exploited via a PHP application of some kind?
which RH version is this?
If you are using RHEL4 (or Fedora Core >= 4) I would recommend enabling
SELinux, particularly if you are dallying with the security sieve that
PHP appears to be...

You can no longer trust this system at all. Absolutely any of the
existing binaries could have been replaced by trojans.
Do you have physical access?
boot into a rescue environment, run your rootkit checks from there.
But IMHO you probably need to reinstall. - back up and check your
webcontent and scripts (prolly config files too).
Then reinstall the system and lock it down as tightly as possible.
(ie, iptables, tcp_wrappers, SELinux, Apache access controls...)
Checking which rootkit (if any) was installed is basically an academic
issue at this point. Removing them is not guranteed to work.
