I would keep your MailScanner.conf somewhere to point 
upgrade_MailScanner_conf at, and replace your tar.gz of MailScanner with 
the RPM for RedHat distribution of MailScanner. If you copy your 
/opt/MailScanner/etc directory to /etc/MailScanner before you start, and 
set the %rules-dir% path and other paths at the top of MailScanner.conf 
to point to /etc/MailScanner directories, then moving to the RPM 
distribution should be much easier.

This is assuming you meant you just did a non-RPM install of MailScanner 
before, for some reason, and didn't do an RPM install of MailScanner.
