OK, I deleted everything I did yesterday and started over.  This time 
I (think) I tried the minimal contex distribution.  Things still 
aren't working.  I am on Redhat Enterprise Linux v4.  Thanks again 
for the help.

Here is what I did today:

download http://www.pragma-ade.nl/context/install/justtex.zip
download http://www.pragma-ade.nl/context/install/linuxtex.zip
move both files to /usr/local
cd /usr/local
unzip -a justtex.zip
unzip -a linuxtex.zip
Set up environment:

export TEXROOT=/usr/local/tex
export TMP=/var/tmp
export TEXMFMAIN=$TEXROOT/texmf
export TEXMFLOCAL=$TEXROOT/texmf-local
export TEXMFFONTS=$TEXROOT/texmf-fonts
export TEXMFEXTRA=$TEXROOT/texmf-extra
export TEXMFPROJECT=$TEXROOT/texmf-project
export TEXMFOS=$TEXROOT/texmf-linux
export VARTEXMF=$TMP/texmf-var
export TEXARCH=i686 # the results of uname -m
export TEXUNIX=Linux # the results of uname -s
export PATH=$TEXMFOS/bin:$PATH
export HOMETEXMF=$HOME/Library/texmf
export TEXMFCNF=$TEXROOT/texmf/web2c
export TEXMF=$TEXMFMAIN
export TEXMFDBS=$TEXMF
export TEXFORMATS=$TEXMFOS/web2c
export MPMEMS=$TEXFORMATS
export TEXPOOL=$TEXFORMATS
export MPPOOL=$TEXPOOL
export RUBYLIB=$TEXMFLOCAL/scripts/context/ruby:$RUBYLIB
export CTXMINIMAL=yes

create the directory specified by $VARTEXMF
cd $TEXMFOS/bin
chmod +x *
chmod -x xpdfsuite.zip
download http://www.pragma-ade.nl/context/current/cont-tmf.zip
mv cont-tmp.zip to $TEXROOT/texmf
cd $TEXROOT/texmf
unzip -ao cont-tmf.zip
copy texmf/context/config/texexec.rme texexec.ini

texexec --verbose
