and they will not
That is until you install the needed NON FREE/NON GPL third party software

this is an OLDER RHEL6.1 install so you ARE Paying RedHat a lot of cash to KEEP it at 6.1 and NOT the current 6.3

you will need to install the rpmforge repo
and install the REQUIRED red hat YUM plugin
"yum-priorities "
the FULL install and CONFIGURE INSTRUCTIONS are in the red hat knowlage base

you ARE ???? paying for the required support license ????
so you DO have red hat tech support ( you HAD to buy it )

login to red hat using the user name and password you set up when you bought the required license
and search for the plug in name
the FULL instructions ARE in the knowledge base

then install the third party programs
your red hat tech support can help wit hthat

you HAVE 100% HAVE to have a paid for license to install software on RHEL
-- as in you have to buy it $$$

if you are not paying the license
install CentOS 6.3
it is a FREE rebuild of RHEL6.3
