    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Why do you need to install RHEL 5? CentOS 5 and RHEL 5 are the same, except for logos and such. If it is because you want Red Hat support, they will sell you a subscription for CentOS on the same terms they will sell you RHEL support.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Ah! Sorry. Confused. It's late any my brain is falling asleep!

    Ok. I just checked out the Red5 web site and download pages. They are distributing the software in a gzip'd tarball for either Java 5 or Java 6 - apparently it is a Java application. Which you use depends upon the version of java you are running. I have both 5 and 6 on my system, but the default is 6 (5 is for legacy apps).

    1. Download the tarball: http://www.red5.org/downloads/red5/0...2-java5.tar.gz or http://www.red5.org/downloads/red5/0...2-java6.tar.gz to a suitable location on your system.
    2. Move to the directory where you saved the file, then unzip and untar it: tar -xzf filename.tar.gz
    3. See the directions on the download page: Red5 v0.8.0 Release Candidate 2 02.03.2009 - Red5 Wiki

    You need to determine which java version you are running. /usr/bin/java should be a link to /usr/java/default/bin/java. /usr/java/default should be a link to /usr/java/latest, though not necessarily. If it is, then /usr/java/latest is a link to the actual version, which in my case is /usr/java/jre1.6.0_11. So, all the installed java versions can (should) be found in /usr/java.
