?  I think the license is GPL, nothing to negotiate.  Your Red Hat
dependency (with Dell Gold Support) is for update channels, and our
experience is that an entitlement is an entitlement:  we have 2850s
purchased with RHEL4 running RHAS 2.1 and RHEL5, under the RH support
registrations bundled in the Dell Gold.

If that's not the case with your agreements, I can learn something.
