Is this actually the case? When I tried this a year or so ago I had lots 
of problems with Redhat Enterprise Linux 5, due to issues with it's  
quite old libc and kernel in that distribution.

Most of the documentation at the nix website seems to relate to the 
nixos distribution, rather than using the nix packages on other, 
mainstream distributions. I'd love it if there we clear instructions on 
getting nix+packages up and running on RHEL.
