Debian uses a different package management system than RH. You might
be able to find instructions about how to create a .deb (the package
for Debian) but if there are instructions about how to install
directly from source (probably into /usr/local/), that is probably the
easiest. Debian users feel free to correct me if I am wrong about that.
