    Q: What is the largest possible size of an ext3 filesystem and of files
    on ext3?

    Ext3 can support files up to 1TB. With a 2.4 kernel the filesystem size
    is limited by the maximal block device size, which is 2TB. In 2.6 the
    maximum (32-bit CPU) limit is of block devices is 16TB, but ext3
    supports only up to 4TB.

    Lets see RHELv3 use Kernel 2.4.x. So the answer is no.
    If you except Fedora3 as a RedHat it is supportet.
