Well, all of the above should work, although on 7.2 the provided kernel
doesn't work when the client cache is stored in ext3. You need to grab a
more recent 2.4 kernel (2.4.4 or higher) from

Also we compile the rpm's on an older RedHat 5.2 machine, so you need to
install some package with compatibility libraries (compat-stdc or
compat-libs, I always forget the name) which is typically not installed
during a fresh install.
