First of all, SL (Scientific Linux) is a derivative of RHEL, as is CentOS. So all three OSs behave exactly the same.
The binaries with "x86_64" binaries are for 64bit systems; the "i386" binaries are for 32bit systems. Since my notebook is 64bits, I downloaded

[root@localhost src]# ldd coot-Linux-x86_64-centos-5-gtk2-python/bin/coot-real
