As SpamAssassin itself does not come with a milter you need a helper.
Fedora Extras has for the current releases (FC3 and FC4) the
spamass-milter packaged. (Shouldn't be that hard to rpmbuild from
src.rpm for legacy FC1.) A milter application I highly recommend is
MimeDefang (www.mimedefang.org). It can do a lot more than just hook in
SA, just by few adjustments in the filter file using Perl code. The
mailinglist and the MD Wiki has a lot of very useful information.
MimeDefang does its own SpamAssassin calls and uses strategies to avoid
the known downsides of SA being a resource hog.
Using the LDA Procmail isn't that much recommended on more busy mail
servers and it is less efficient (at least be sure that if using
Procmail to make use of spamc / spamd and not calling spamassassin
Sorry, I have no real documentation hint for you. Pages you might look
