   Since I expect that if OSS was installed on a Redhat system it might have
been installed using an RPM? I don't know since I've never used OSS myself.)

   Anyway, if it was installed by RPM, couldn't it be removed by RPM? Maybe
some instructions along those lines would be helpful?

   I remember the first time I installed the Planet flow this was a question
for me. I didn't know anything about OSS and licensing, etc., so I just
thought it was another piece of free software, etc. and it was confusing.

   Anyway, just a thought.
