fedora 2 license information

hey guys,
I just want to make sure I got this right. I am installing fedora core 2 on a machine for the intranet server in our organisation.
I just wanted to make sure that the license does not require us to pay ne fees to redhat if it is being used in a professional enviornment.
also does the GNU GPL license require us to pay ne fees to developers if the apps are being used in a company?
I have always used linux at home and so have never wondered about all this but now i Just want to make sure before doing something.

Fedora is free meaning you can install it on all the machines you want and not pay a license fee. Red Hat is also not responsible for any problems you have with it.

Fedora is basically to test for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. So not all apps will be stable. So use at you own risk. Most in a corporate environment would suggest something more stable.

You don't have to pay developers of GPL software though most would gladly accept dontations
