[pdftex] Installing on RedHat server

Hi Chiari,

I believe that redhat 7.3 (and higher) comes with tetex distribution that
includes tex, latex, pdftex, and pdflatex (and many other goodies). So if
TeX has been  installed on the machine, pdf(la)tex is most likely is there
as well. Just login to the server (or ask your ISP engineer to log in), and
try to start "pdflatex". We have a similiar setup at our ISP
provider---works just fine (you can check out our demo section at our
website at www.awarereports.com where we invoke pdflatex from php). Let me
know if you need any further help, or have any questions.
