I'm looking to convert from CentOS 6 to Redhat 6

Does anyone know of any good guides?

Basically, i am currently stuck with a particular cloud service provider and right now they only offer:

CentOS 6.2 64-bit
Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64-bit
Debian 6.0.3 64-bit
Arch Linux  64-bit

I wanted to know of a method to convert any of the distros above to RHEL 5 or 6.

Any help would be appreciated.

You can not convert any of the distros about to RHEL.  You would need to uninstall the current OS and reinstall RHEL.

Also RHEL needs a subscription from redhat which can be pricey.  But CentOS is basically the same exact thing as redhat but without the paid support.

A complete reinstall and the installing the equivalent packages/configuration have to be made. Some differ in terms f file location and app naming convention I.e Ubuntu uses apache/apache2while centos red hat uses httpd
