Hmm, should be there.
Have you tried

locate gd

Or else
making an assumption about your hardware.

I don't really want to download it after the fact.... I want php to be compiled with GD support. The easiest way to do that is to make sure I install it during the OS installation. In order to do that I need to find out where the GD package is... I mean, under which package group is it? I can't seem to find it. Thanks for your help.

Hmm, I can't find my FC3 cd's to tell you specifically where it is. In one of the rpm folders, but I know what you me.

It really is trivial to install it after the fact though.
Download and:

rpm -ivh php-gd*.rpm

or even let yum do it for you:

yum install php-gd

php might not come w/ gd support. I installed FC3 on a system a few months and it didn't, although it's possible I missed something.

Few minutes later..... :)

I have done it after-the-fact but that but that doesn't allow php to be precompiled with gd support. I want it all done in one fell swoop.

I wasn't using yum to install it previously... but when I tried your yum suggestion it worked perfectly. Thanks!
