Hi Dag,
mi personal experience is that:
- migrating from RH 7.3 to RHEL 2.1 -> OK
- migrating from RH 9 to RHEL 3.6 -> No that easy, many libraries differ 
(in versions)

I think that RH9 has still a relative big install base, because it was 
the last
"free" Redhat, RH8 was too bad, and FC1 was too new.

Back in the days People were installing RH9 instead of FC1 or never moved
from RH9 because there was no more free RedHat. Of course you can migrate
from RH9 to Fedora, but it is not supported.

Maybe letting RH9 live would be whise option, because you can tell people
to migrate from RH 7.3 to Centos 2.1, the migration is just too simple and
the versions in both distro are the same.
