[SciPy-user] Hints for easy install of scipy on RHEL 4?

Is RHEL 4 necessary?  I had the same problems building scipy, so I
decided to save myself some grief.  I installed FC 6 instead, while I
wait for RHEL 5. If you have to have RHEL as opposed to FC, then I
suggest you upgrade to RHEL 5beta2, which is based on FC 6/7.

Just my $.02 worth.
