...additionally also please make a distinction between "Red Hat Linux" (defunct ages ago and replaced by Fedora) and "Red Hat Enterprise Linux". If you run the latter and it's really at 5.0 then it's 9 updates behind. Not good performance and improvement-wise but definitely not good security and bug fix-wise.
