Redhat 5.1 Yum Repository vs Fedora x.x Yum Repository

Having nothing but success installing many tools and programs available with fedora, our company recently purchased a Redhat License and now we are to use only that.

My problem is the 'Everything' Category in Fedora has all the tools I need to work with and dependencies are automatically resolved for me. However, RedHat 5.1 only has the 'core' and 'updates' limiting the tools I need to work with.

What exactly are my options?
The way I currently see it, I'm going to need to install a seperate machine with fedora and follow all the dependencies... I'll need to get all the srpms and compile them on RH51. I'm hoping this is extreme overkill and one of you smart buggers are going to give me a simple answer .

Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. You can use their repos. Check the Centos wiki for alternative repos (atrpms plays nice with Centos, unlike the way it plays with Fedora).
