Sure.  Don't use redhat-config-network.  I never have and have set up
quite a few boxes with multiple interfaces on varying networks with
varying subnet masks.

There are many documented procedures on how to do this.  I personally
haven't done it though.

There are always licenses but some are more open than others.  With
Fedora, you can install as many copies as you want and do pretty much
whatever you want to do with the results just like you could with the
earlier Red Hat Linux releases.  With RHEL, there are restrictions since
it's subscription-based and you're buying a support contract with each
subscription..  The license is online at redhat.com.  Essentially you
need to purchase one copy per system.  For the various rebuilds (Tao,
etc.) you can install as many as you want without charge.
