Thanks to Mark and Steven, but it seems that the paths are consistent
between servers. I just inherited the server and need to get it on a
supported OS. Here is the old server info:

Fedora release 13 (Goddard)

New server info:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago)

Any other ideas?
