I did manage setup and configure fuse and [sshfs][2] on my Redhat EL 5.4. But when I hit the sshfs it's out put an error

sshfs: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 

couldn't figure out the exact reason, requesting some helping hand

You need to install: fuse-libs:


yum install fuse-libs

Check that you got the libs you need and that ldd finds your shared libs with:

ldd `which sshfs`
