I hear that it is very simular. What is the difference? Does Fedora have any dis/advantages over RH?

Can Fedora use RPMs labled for RH?

You can try Red Hat rpms, but note that it is a different release and you may get version problems.

if you mean older RPMS they should work like a charm. newer also. Fedora is essentialy the same as RH (meaning ABIs and APIs)... you can always grab a SRPM and recompile it if you get ABI mismatch. generaly everything built for RHL should work flawlessly on FC. only thing which can cause problems is kernel stuff as Fedora is now 2.6 and RHL still runs 2.4...
