I make the Red Hat/Intel rpms. The R rpms on the powertools CD are based
on mine, but checked and compiled by Red Hat.

I haven't rolled up an rpm for R 0.63.2 because it was only released
yesterday! My hard drive is churning away as I write, making an updated
rpm which should be mirrored to a CRAN site near you in a day or so.

Anyone with RedHat 5.0, 5.1 or 5.2 should be able to install the
R rpms if they follow the instructions in the README file. In principle,
minor releases of Red Hat Linux should be binary compatible. In
practice this isn't always the case but I try to work around it.
