Would be nice, if you could just use "yum install mod_security" which
is what they show on page 150 of the NSA manual about hardening RHEL
5, but if it isn't in the yum repositories....  You've already been to
the modsecurity.org web site which they also reference.  Once you have
it installed, they have some configuration suggestions. They also
suggest installing DOS protection module(s). GL
