Hmm. RHEL3 was released 2003-10-22. My notes say that they've been
promising a 5-year support life, which would take them to 2008.
You'll definitely get security-fix RPMs from RHN, which might be good
enough and timely enough to keep Internet-facing systems safe. (That'll
strain their maintenance resources a bit, since they'll be supporting
_three_ enterprise releases simultaneously, at that point.)
What you'll probably not be getting much longer, I think, are update
releases -- which would mostly be a problem to those seeking to install
onto newer hardware. Update 6 might just have been the last. My
impression may be wrong, of course.
