+RedHat 7.* systems:
+<a href="http://install.lon-capa.org/resources/LON-CAPA-systemperl-3.4-rh7.i386.rpm">
+To install the systemperl RPM, you should enter the following command:
+<table bgcolor="#aaaaaa" border="1">
+rpm -Uvh --force LON-CAPA-systemperl-3.4-rh7.i386.rpm
+The systemperl RPM will overwrite some of

+This is okay; this will not likely cause problems.
