I've got 3 or 4 e-smith boxen, but I haven't run IC on them.  I would say to:
  o create the "interch" user ahead of time (e-smith-manager might work, 
otherwise try 'useradd')
  o Make sure user has shell access: #chsh -s "/bin/bash" interch
  o Install all the perl modules you need
  o (I recommend avoiding MySQL until you get IC working with the file 
  o Install interchange from the tarball (makecat, etc.)
  o Report problems with details to the list  :-)

You might run into trouble with the firewall rules, httpd.conf setup, etc. 
things.  But try it first and see what happens.  Have you installed IC on a 
regular redhat box before?  If not, then I recommend doing that first.
