I don't see why not...

I just want to point out a few alternatives :

As a free alternative to RedHat Enterprise Linux :

Tao Linux

cAos Linux

White Box Enterprise Linux

I personnally use Tao on several non-dell servers, and it's great, I
personnlly recommand it.

Next, some companies continue to "back-port" security fixes to rh 7,8 and 9
(those a paid subscriptions...) :

Progeny Transition Service

The Fedora Legacy Project

I've not use any of these services...
