Okay, but that was not my question. I know CentOS. I just want to know if i 
could take the packages from Red Hat and use them for my customers?

Since i really like Fedora Core and the RHEL - the sceond one espacially in 
commercial envoirenments - i really would like to install an enterprise Linux 
witout to infringe any license.

My customer will then be happy, that he could use an enterprise Linux 
operation system _for_free_. And after some time he maybe needs enterprise 
support and could easy buy a license at RedHat, use the support and finally 
update the system when he wants. Or maybe i will do the updates and could 
earn some money too... ;-)

I think this is a good way to make them an easy decission in the future.
