I am looking into using RedHat Linux on a new cPanel server I plan on running. Money is EXTREMLY tight right now and its not a big money making or critical server so I am looking at my OS options.

I was looking for any feedback on the differences in running either RH Fedora Core 2 or RH Enterprise Linux 3 (besides support). Is Fedora2 that much more unstable, or maybe I should re-phrase that and ask, is Enterprise that much more stable? Are their any other major differences between the two other than support and maybe stablility? Is cPanel more prone to having issues with Fedora2?

Thanks for any feedback you may have.....

go for centOS3.4 which is the white label ( free ) for RHEP3
Really?!? I have never heard of that? Is it trully RedHat (not that I am band loyal)? Nice....

Will do! Thanks for the info! Good Stuff!

I guess the most important feature would be the ability to get easy automatic updates simular to the RedHat Network.... and to support all my servers hardware (which FreeBSD had a probelm with but Fedora did not) but I'm sure I'll find all this info once I do some reading :)

Go on, have a guess
You should not use Fedora on production servers. As gorilla has said CentOS is the same as RedHat Enterprise without the proprietary bits (which you won't need) and the license cost, i.e. it's free:

Here's a comparison between Fedora and RHE:
