Anyone got a "quickstart" to installing all these updates on a
RedHat/RPM system?  If not, what docs will help a "newbie" get
started?  From there, I promise to write a "quickstart" for others
(as I have for LyX).

So I guess all I really need is just an updated pdftex and the
hyperref stuff.  Forget LyX integration -- I can export LaTeX and go
from there at the CLI.

Again, all my RedHat 7.1 TeX stuff comes from its tetex-1.0.7-15 RPM
(2000 Jan?).
