never considered that, I downloaded rhel5.1server DVD the other day on
ibook-g4:~ Daddy$ curl -V
curl 7.16.3 (powerpc-apple-darwin9.0) libcurl/7.16.3 OpenSSL/0.9.7l
Protocols: tftp ftp telnet dict ldap http file https ftps
Features: GSS-Negotiate IPv6 Largefile NTLM SSL libz

Worked a treat, now two instances of rhel5.1 in xen on FC8.
