Fedora & redhat How similar? [porting Fedora install script to Redhat]

How similar is RedHat and Fedora?

If there was a script that setsup a standard Fedora install (That downloads things with wget and does ./configure && make && make install and so forth). What considerations should be taken to moving the script to be able to set up a standard RedHat install?

Thank you.

Fedora has changed alot now and is much more advanced in terms of libraries / version etc. You would need to do some test builds etc to check its compatablilty. If you dont have any spare redhat boxes I would recommend using Cent OS.
