The simple answer is no. However, with the addition of SELinux, which, by default, comes with Red Hat and can be added to other distributions, it goes some of the way toward meeting the requirements. It is my understanding that Red Hat Enterprise 4 and 5 have both been submitted for evaluation against the requirements of the standard. You might wish to check the NIST website for details of how these submissions have progressed.
