I think it would be a good ideea to try to enable
(uncomment) (hope it works in RH 5.2 too...) in
/etc/inetd.conf the last line that looks like
"swat stream tcp nowait.400 root
/usr/sbin/swat swat"

...then do a /etc/rc.d/init.d/inet restart
...then start Netscape or any graphical brwser on your
Linux box and link to "localhost:901" and you'll see
something very nice and useful...full of help...too!!!

Good luck...and let me know if ti worked.
