I was installing GHC 6.2.2 on RH AS r3 on x86 recently and the generic
binary distribution for "Generic Linux with glibc 2.3" worked fine. Just
download it from the website, configure, make in-place, and you have a
working GHC in 5 minutes. You can use this GHC to compile another, newer
versions. There is a generic binary x86/Linux glibc 2.3 version of GHC
6.4 on the website too.

Best regards
