Fedora Core 1 is out, which is supposed to replace the Red hat 9 series.
I've been running the Fedora's yum updates to my Red Hat 9 box and AG,
and I've been pretty happy with it.

The NPACI ROCKS project (http://www.rocksclusters.org) uses Red Hat
Enterprise 2.1 AW for their distribution, so I don't for see any
problems if people use it with out buying it from Red Hat. There aren't
ISO images, and the fee they charge is mainly for up2date, unless you
pay more for support.

The bits are free. The support isn't.
