The Fedora clamav packages are really quite confusing.
You can use the config files which I used in past versions (Fedora 6 - 
8) but will probably be similar in F10.
Here are some config files and script for install (you might need to 
tweak it up a bit):

However, I recommend that you uninstall the clamav packages,
and install it from source.

For 2 reasons:

1. Main reason = Fedora do not update packages for new clamav versions,
so you will stay behind with an old version in a short time.

2. In addition, it is simpler and easier to get the source packages 
install working and cooperating with MD.

To do that, you can use the following config and script files (again, 
with few tweaks if needed):
