For your installation pleasure, RPM packages built on RedHat
are now available.  Binary packages built for RedHat 7.x are at

  ftp://ftp.cse.unsw.edu.au/pub/users/chak/jibunmaki/i386/ghc-5.00.2-1.i386.rpm
  ftp://ftp.cse.unsw.edu.au/pub/users/chak/jibunmaki/i386/ghc-prof-5.00.2-1.i386.rpm

and those for RedHat 6.2 are at

  ftp://ftp.cse.unsw.edu.au/pub/users/chak/jibunmaki/i386-rh6.2/ghc-5.00.2-1.i386.rpm
  ftp://ftp.cse.unsw.edu.au/pub/users/chak/jibunmaki/i386-rh6.2/ghc-prof-5.00.2-1.i386.rpm

The ghc-prof-* packages contain optional libraries for
profiling.  The packages for 6.2 are courtesy of Tom Moertel.

The source rpm used to built the above binaries is at

  ftp://ftp.cse.unsw.edu.au/pub/users/chak/jibunmaki/src/ghc-5.00.2-1.src.rpm

If you build from the source rpm using an older version of
GHC, note that you have to build the system twice if you
like to use the interactive environment.  The second build
should use the compiler generated in the first.
