I got the answers to my questions. I went to the horses mouth. RedHat
said:
If you buy one Enterprise system or Workstation system and put it on
other machines you have the following three restrictions:
1. You can not update the other machines through binary updating. If
they find someone rampantly distributing their licenced updates to
unlcensed machines, they intend to take legal action.

2. You have to remove all references to the redhat name from the
unlicenced machines.

3. Their is a propritery IBM package included which will have to be
removed.

If anyone on from RedHat on the list disaggrees with this analysis of
RedHat's position I owuld be interested in hearing from them.
