This may be a dumb question, but since it hasn't actually come up yet...
Are we *certain* the hosting company in question installed Fedora v6 and not
the current release (also v6) of Red Hat Enterprise Linux?

IIRC Fedora was still under the Red Hat banner at v6, so this could be a
simple mix up by a sales droid or some other communication SNAFU.
Especially so since RHN might be a much more appealing way of managing a
large number of installs than rolling their own solution on Fedora for a web
hosting company...

What does the command "cat /etc/redhat-release" return?
