But this is why I am asking which RHEL branch CEntos follows mainly because 
I had gone through Redhat comparison documentation. Is Centos 3.3 based on 
RHEL AS which has higher limits or RHEL ES which has lower ones. Is it 
possible to base it to RHEL AS? Is the SRPMS for RHEL built on a RHEL AS 
build computer to generate CEntos RPMS?
