It does not matter.

You will likely need to change your MySQL www@localhost password to
be "localhostkey".

You should also restart the Apache and lonc/lond services:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart
/etc/rc.d/init.d/loncontrol restart

Maybe, but loncapa.tar.gz is more important and useful than an installation CD
IMHO.  The goal is to have UPDATE work on any RedHat system irrespective
of the state of the filesystem.
