The support license says you must buy support for every machine in the
company who bought the license. But you can give the CDs away to other
people who don't have to get a support license. At least, that was my
understanding of it. If you want to find it, it's available on redhat's
site, before this descends into warfare.
Without a support license though, up2date doesn't work. So getting
updates is quite hard (I went through hoops, and eventually gave up and
moved to centos)
