PVFS does in fact work under Redhat 7.0.  It is no longer dependent on
glibc for compatibility (although this may not be completely clear from
the RPM's and documentation yet- my apologies :)  Just download the latest
RPM's from http://www.parl.clemson.edu/pvfs which will provide all of the
servers and native PVFS libraries.  Then download the
pvfs-kernel-0.8.3.tgz (same URL).  The latter package provides a kernel
module that provides compatability with existing Linux applications.  This
takes the place of the glibc wrapper libraries that were formerly
required for the same purpose.

If you have further questions (or just want to peruse the archives) you
may want to have a look at the pvfs users mailing list, which can be found
at http://parlweb.parl.clemson.edu/pvfs/pvfs-lists.html.

good luck!
