nhl is on a distinguished road

I saw many threads on this forum about paraFoam. I am still not getting how to handle to complete the OpenFoam installation.

Actually first steps works well...but when comes the time to run does not work so I search on forums and manuals...find "Compiling Paraview 3.6.1 and the PV3FoamReader module", install locally qt as explained.

I come to
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader       
at that point I got problem with cmake so I install a local version of cmake (2.8)
Change some paths to find the correct executable. At the end I come to get this error and I am not getting what to do at that point...some help please ?
make: *** [Make/linux64GccDPOpt/vtkPV3Foam.o] Error 1
+ cd PV3FoamReader
+ mkdir -p Make/linux64GccDPOpt
+ cd Make/linux64GccDPOpt
+ set ParaView_DIR=/nishome/nhl/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/paraview-3.6.1
+ /usr/local/cmake-2.8.1-Linux-i386/bin/cmake ../..
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:12 (FIND_PACKAGE):
  Could not find module FindParaView.cmake or a configuration file for
  package ParaView.

  Adjust CMAKE_MODULE_PATH to find FindParaView.cmake or set ParaView_DIR to
  the directory containing a CMake configuration file for ParaView.  The file
  will have one of the following names:


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:13 (INCLUDE):
  include called with wrong number of arguments.  Include only takes one

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:37 (ADD_PARAVIEW_PLUGIN):
  Unknown CMake command "ADD_PARAVIEW_PLUGIN".

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
+ make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
If I have already paraview installed (3.8), how can I set openfoam to use it for paraFoam ?
My station is Linux Red Hat 5.3 Linux 64bit...I "installed" OF 1.6..
