Antivirus AVG Free

Has anyone actually managed to install AVG Free antivirus on FC5 (or other)
The rpm fails (yes dependencies are all installed) but says it has completed and installed. No archive to be found. No help on the AVG site. No way to actually contact them.
For an outfit who put up a huge ad campaign on having the first real av software for linux, it's a pretty poor showing.
I use the Windows version on that system with absolutely no issue. It's a great piece of software - on Windows.
Any suggestions for an alternate Fedora Core 5 AV package?

You have "BitDefender" and also "Kaspersky". I personally like BitDefender.
