You might be right, I may have misunderstood what he meant by the
"bits".  If he were talking copyright stuff, you are right.  But you
would have to remove all the Red Hat trademarks and art work and symbols
as well.  However, I have read that RH imbeds them or attaches them in a
way to destroy the normal operational abilities of the OS.  So it may be
possible but it may also be very difficult.

The you heard wrong. I get a Cd that is not redistributable when certian
packages are redistributed, remove those packages and am left with a
redistributable CD. You have to follow the trademark guidelines, but by
removing those packages (plus the IBM ones) and not calling it Red Hat
Advanced Server or other derivations, you're fine. Even RH says this.
