redhat-lsb is far from being a suitable package for this.  As an example, 
here's what "yum install redhat-lsb" would do to my very sensibly working, 
although admittedly quite trimmed down PVR running FC6:

 Package                 Arch       Version          Repository        Size
 redhat-lsb              i386       3.1-11           core               21 k
