How similar is commercial Linux?

When our site discontinued its 35+ year use of IBM mainframe-based software
for its administrative tasks, it switched to Solaris. At the time, brltty
ran only on Linux, and since Sun-Linux docs said it would be patterned after
Red Hat 7, I installed Red Hat on my home and work computers.
Now we're starting to investigate Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and since I'm
literally the only one around here who uses Linux of any sort they're asking
me a lot of questions.
How portable is my experience with Red Hat versions from 8 to Fedora 2 (soon
to include Fedora 3 which is slated for release ca. November 1)? Is
Enterprise Linux Desktop about comparable to Fedora, 4 CDs etc? Does anybody
know how big Enterprise Linux AS is and how the file layouts and included
Thanks much for any info,
