Why do you ask?

Try going to Forums -> Distributions -> Sub-Forum and choose either Red Hat or Fedora

"RedHat Linux" probably isn't as I believe the last version was 9.0. But you have the commercial version, RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), the free-spins of that, CentOS and Scientific Linux and the free Fedora project.

So....yes and no, really

Red Hat was discontinued in 2003, and merged into Fedora. Where/when did you get this note?

That will be the note that Red Hat 9 is old and obsolete, but Red Hat Enterprise and Fedora are both supported. It was a tip to people running old versions that they need to upgrade.
