Depends... if they're original boxed copies of Redhat (which is highly unlikely
at that price point) then there's no problem at all.
Equally, if he just bought one copy of Redhat and ran off a few dozen CD-R's of
it, then he can legally resell them *provided* he doesn't claim that they're
Redhat originals : Redhat 6.1 is sold as a boxed set with support built into the
price, and he cannot offer that nor obligate Redhat to support the 'Redhat'
Linux that he's selling.
I just took a quick dekko at the offer on ebid : he's offering the CD's *only*,
with no mention of the boxed set or manuals, and he's claiming that there's
email support available. This is incorrect and illegal, IMNSHO. He cannot offer
that support for copies of Redhat.
