What is going to happen to Redhat's support income when companies like IBM, sgi, Compaq, HP, and maybe even Sun get interested and start offering support.

*chuckle* You missed the news back at the beginning of the year. Red Hat took a chuck of new Venture Capital last year and used it to build up an Enterprise Support group. Then they started to talk to all the big companies you mentioned. Back in the first couple of months of this year there were a series of announcements of support deals between Red Hat and IBM, HP, Compaq, Dell, et. al. (LinixCare also got some) The support for Linux (Red Hat's distributions) on those servers from IBM, HP, etc. is coming from Red Hat.
