[tex-live] teTeX on Linux

Dear Mr Rahtz:
I have been installing and using TeXLive on Windows for several years with
hardly a glitch.  Now I have started playing with (Redhat 9) Linux and so
wanted to install TeX there too; surprisingly, the distro lacks it.
I followed the instruction on the TeXLive 2003 inst CD and installed it
without any problem.  But subsequently I discovered two things:

*	I can download teTeX (2.0.2-8) RPM file(s) from the Web and install
it conveniently as RPMs are a lot easier to install (so I gather).
*	You can provide an RPM to anyone who wants it.

Therefore, could you 

1.	Instruct me on how to uninstall TeXLive on Linux so that I can
install an RPM (and, no less valuable, as a learning exercise)?
2.	Send me teTeX RPM?  Of course, I do not want to bother you if it is
older than 2.0.2-8.

Many thanks in advance.  Even if you cannot help me, I still wish to thank
you for your excellent work in bringing out TeXLive.
Best regards,
Sastry Dasigi
