Alternatives for power steering fluid

Hi,

I am trying to fix a problem with my power steering over the weekend and it looks like no store in my neighborhood has either Pentosin CHF-11S or Redline PS fluid in stock
Are there any alternatives?

Thanks

My NAPA carries CHF-11S and the compatible CFH-202. However, they were MUCH more expensive than Pelican. However, if you need it now, you need it now...

Pentosin - Hydraulic Fluid

I decided to stick with Redline and ordered it on-line.
Should arrive by Tue, so teh project needs to wait a few days
