RHEL 4 came out right before FC3 was released, so it is mainly based on
an "enterpise-hardened" FC2.

Yes. However, be aware that if you need support from Red Hat on
something and they find that you have installed packages DIRECTLY
RELATED TO YOUR PROBLEM which come from other sources, they will
probably ask you to remove those foreign packages as a trouble-shooting
In other words, if you install a non-Red Hat version of KDE and then
call Red Hat because you are having KDE problems, they will probably ask
you to remove the non-Red Hat KDE stuff.
If you install non-Red Hat KDE and then have problems with something
unrelated like USB support, Red Hat will work the unrelated issue with
