To save time I would not try to debug the RH version but just download 
a current TeXLive from www.tug.org. Currently they have two iso 
images (and one consolidated dvd image). They are marked Beta but 
release date is imminent. The iso image named "demo" is an abridged 
version that can be run from the CDR. The one named "inst" has 
everything and is for installing on your hard disk. If you don't have 
a CD burner then you can mount the iso image as a file system and 
unload from that, or so I am told. 

TeXlive by default creates a directory /usr/TeX where everything is. 
So if your old installation exists on /share or somehere else you may 
have to delete it.  As with any new TeX it pays to run texhash and 
fmtutil a few times until everyhing gets sorted out.  And make sure 
that your default paths (in /etc/profile on my Slack system) include:
/usr/TeX/bin i386-linux.
