Loading Hard Hat 2.0

We installed the Hard Hat 2.0 Professional
version on Red Hat 7.1. There is a minor
install script problem. It checks the version
number in file /etc/redhat-release to decide how
to install. Change 7.1 to 7.0 and then run the
installation script.

I don't know about installing both 1.x and 2.0
on the same machine.

RedHat 7.1 is not a supported target.  See below.

Normally, yes.  But, I _think_ the main reason RedHat 7.1 isn't supported
is that the version of RPM shipped by default does NOT support relocation,
so you can't install HHL 2.0 into another subdir and have 1.x and 2.0
