You shouldn't need to bother since RHEL 5 has yum. Just add your repo
definitions into your /etc/yum.repos.d directory.

The only limitation I have been able to see with RHEL's yum is the lack of
the priorities plugin. You can use protectbase as a replacement. If I get a
chance today, maybe I'll try to update that wiki page.
