Thanks John,

I tried your suggestion but it made no difference, and
whilst I wiped the egg off my face I reinstalled from the
6.5 CD after uninstalling 7.0 as root. So its all happy now.

I guess with my current configuration it ain't gonna work
under RedHat 6.1, but I am going to wait till a proven
version of RedHat 7.x comes out before I upgrade.

Cheers
Alan
