You should probably check out our rpms repository for Fedora. Fred
installation is described at http://fred.nic.cz/wiki/download in section
"Binary packages". The process of starting fred is easy after that:

/etc/init.d/postgresql initdb # if never called
/etc/init.d/postgresql start
/etc/init.d/omniNames start
/etc/init.d/fred-server start
/etc/init.d/fred-webadminserver start

We should definitely update HOWTO because there are things that are not
true or now work at all in new versions. Documentation update is, I'am
afraid. long term process. Maybe subscribers of this list should help us
with making some FAQ. What are the main things you would like to now
about FRED?

Jara
