Differences Between Fedora and RH EL

Hi everyone,

I have been asked to install RHEL 4.0 for a testing server and I was wondering what the difference between RHEL and Fedora.

Is it safe to say that the 'base' is identical but the applications on RHEL are more 'stable'?

the main difference is that RHEL is designed to be very stable while fedora is designed to be very bleeding edge... fedora "is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat products. It is not a supported product of Red Hat, Inc."
