I'll raise my hand for this. I've installed the previous version of IRAF
about half a dozen times and have most of the gotchas figured out, I have
a new Mandrake system where I was planning to install it again, it has a
CD burner, etc. Never made an RPM, but how hard can it be?
I will get busy downloading the distribution files this evening. As I
recall, that can take quite a while.
