Oops, maybe I should have been paying more attention!

I am actually about to start testing backports of RHEL3 kernels and such
into my environment. I guess this might end up being more interesting
than I thought it would be.

That is the problem.  They work fine with 7.3, but 7.X is EOL'd .
If you're forced to run RH Enterprise 3 like RedHat and many vendors
require 
you're SOL.

The lemons are in the phony support contracts, version requirements and
"certification" from both 
RH and Dell.
