Steve, here is a procedure, that you could apply, in order to get
yourself a clean Red Hat 8.0 system with SAP WAS Test Drive installed.
You need to become a little bit familiar with Red Hat specifics:

1.Install a fresh Red Hat 8.0 system.

2.Connect to RHN (Red Hat Network) and update everything EXCEPT the
kernel (if you do update the OS kernel, you will be allowed to configure
your system, so that you can select the kernel version to load at boot
time).

3.Boot your Red Hat system (if you upgraded the OS kernel, in the
previous step, and have the option of what kernel to boot with, then
choose the oldest kernel available) and install the SAP WAS Test Drive
according to the instructions, offered by SAP in the installation
document on the CD's.

4.If everything goes O.K., reconnect to RHN and upgrade your OS kernel
to the latest version available.

You should be O.K. doing the above.

Good luck,
