I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be, but why would you want to use
Python 2.4 in production if you don't have to? RHEL will come with Python
already installed, I believe it is Python 2.6.
It is *much* better to use Python 2.6 if you can: it is faster, has fewer
bugs, and more modern features.
But if you must use Python 2.4, make sure that you do NOT replace the
system Python already installed. If installing from source, use "make
altinstall" instead of "make install" to ensure that it doesn't overwrite
the system Python.
