Thank you for all your help.  You won't discourage me - I've been 
playing around with RedHat since 5.0, and half the fun of RedHat is 
getting it to work *properly*.  ;)

I've never tried hacking the RPMs, as I've always just tried to solve 
the dependencies, but that sounds like it could be fun!  :)
