RHEL5 packages in CentOS5 ?

CentOS5 is binary-compatible with RHEL5 so it should be no problem technically; however, if you have RHEL5 why would you be using CentOS5? And conversely, if you're going to use CentOS you would be better advised to use the CentOS repos and packages than try to mix in RHEL stuff. Performance should be equivalent on the same hardware.

Thanks.

I wish to use RHEL5 packages in CentOs 5.4.
Because, then I can configure my Server with CentOS 5.4 CD-1
and RHEL5 packages (he,he....).
I've already stumbled with the LiveCD (!!!).(699 MB,useless without net connection).

Any way thanks for show me a way.
