White Box Enterprise Linux

White Box Enterprise Linux is a project whose goal is to build a freely redistributable distribution based on the SRPMS for Red Hat, Inc.'s Enterprise Linux 3.0. It is meant to remain close enough to the original to share its errata SRPMS, binary modules, and 3rd party packages.
