Scientific Linux tracks Red Hat Enterprise Linux, so SL4.x is very
similar to RHEL 4.  For differences, look at

If you use commercial scientific software or compilers, you may want to
look at SL.  If a vendor says that they support RHEL 4 then SL 4 should
work with no problem.  Take a look at the live CD/DVD first:
