Linux doesn't cache binaries... if you're running a binary and you
delete the file from the filesystem, then it'll hold a hidden copy till
you terminate the last running copy, but it will re-locate the file any
time you try to run it.
'which <filename>' will tell you the location of the file which will be
executed if you type a command.
What exactly is your problem here? Failure to connect to localhost?
Failure to connect to a different machine on the network?
Does that machine have the IP address of *your* machine in it's /etc/hosts
file? If not, put it in... RedHat comes with a default lookup of the
connecting machine and if that fails you wind up with a long wait until
it allows the connect. To verify this, try reconnecting and leave it for a
minute or so.
