Thats true. The whole of the professional pack is /not/ for
redistribution. Methinks only the first CD is redistributable, and the
SRPM CD. I'm not even sure about the docs, because it contains the RH
handbooks etc.

If perl and python mods are what they have, they should be
redistributable! Its not so much as that RedHat CD's arent
redistributable, but that some of the third-party programs that are
present on the CD's being licensed by RedHat only for selling once.

In anycase, can we meet behind the bhoot bangla of the kaali pahaadi at 2
PM? Bring the CD's in seperate cases, come alone, and dont even think of
informing the police or you'll regret it. ;-)
