My opinion is that you can trust dag repository which means that you can
pick up webmin from there.

Licensing issues mean that you are very unlikely to see Acrobat Reader,
RealPlayer or Java in 3rd party repositories

I'll let others comment about the rest.

I will say though that so far, I am really thrilled with kde-redhat
repository and they have kept samba up and kde up to date and they have
worked really well so far - thanks Rex
