Guys, This is definitely very trivial for those who are in red hat for
several years.

I have registered for an evaluation copy of rhel5 32bit and download all
the 5 discs, and tried installing them but it does not show "Cluster"
packages during the installation. I attempted this couple times even with
the installation number (it shows additionally Virtualization packages if
Installation Number is given). With the EasyInstall, it completes the
installation quickly but most of the packages are not installed.

So, I attempted installing these RPMs manually from disc5 , it throws me
errors like some dependency rpm's not available as shown below.

[root at server1 Cluster]# pwd
/media/RHEL-5.6 i386 Disc 5/Cluster

[root at server1 Cluster]# ls
Cluster_Administration-gu-IN-5.2-1.noarch.rpm  TRANS.TBL
Cluster_Administration-ja-JP-5.2-1.noarch.rpm  ipvsadm-1.24-12.el5.i386.rpm

Cluster_Administration-or-IN-5.2-1.noarch.rpm  ricci-0.12.2-24.el5.i386.rpm

[root at server1 Cluster]# rpm -ia ricci-0.12.2-24.el5.i386.rpm

[root at server1 Cluster]# rpm -ia modcluster-0.12.1-2.el5.i386.rpm

I am not an expert in red hat but not a novice too.
I know i can download these dependency packages one by one but it would be
endless to me.
Is there a better way of installing all these Cluster packages at one shot
to make my life easier ?
Also, I read in some links talking about up2date but later realize that
these are not meant for rhel5+ versions. Is that true ?
My system with the freshInstall do not have up2date installed, i am
surprised if at all this is supported/available for rhel5 onwards.

I am really looking for a simple solution to install all the dependent
rpm's for Cluster rather than i search for them one by one.
If i can do this through yum, i don't have a yum repo setup locally. Is
there one publicly available ?

My requirement is : I want to setup two RHEL vm's in my MacBook as
active-passive in cluster for Apache, Squid, Mysql services as a proof of
concept for my internal business requirement. thanks.
