I'd imagine that you should be able to do it. There's not going to be that much difference. If it was FC2 then there would be a problem - due to kernel versions.

Try it out and see, let us know how you get on!

Yes, since it's a source rpm, you can rebuild it to the platform you choose: RHEL. ometimes cross-distro rebuilds can be troublesome, but in this casde, the two distro are linked and based off each other so there's better compatibility.

This all depends on the src.rpm. A source RPM contains a specfile and the source code, usually in a tar.gz file.

If the specfile lists certain BuildRequires that aren't part of RHAS, then it won't build, as these contain packagename >= version 1.0.1 etc.

You would have to try each one.
