There are procedures to convert for RHEL5, and no doubt something
similar will work for RHEL6 as well.
Antother option is ScientificLinux 6.0, which although not out yet
either has a public rolling 6.0 release available that I recently
installed from for similar reasons as you.
I'll likely try to convert it to CentOS 6 when it's available, so we'll
see how that goes.
