Thanks, you found the problem!!!
FC3 introduced "SELinux" (Security Enhanced Linux) with new security features. These features are enabled by default.
I read the links you provided and decided the easiest thing to try was to disable the extra security by editing /etc/selinux/config file, changing from "enforcing" to "disabled."
Now Apache and pmwiki work OK. I'm not worried about the security aspect because my setup is on an internal intranet.

You may need to adjust the Apache daemon's SELinux policy.
