Engine Coolant...what kind?

Can I use any other brand of engine coolant for my 6.0? I was under the hood today replacing the batteries and saw I was on the MIN level, but I really dont want to fork over all my cash to the Ford dealer for Motorcraft if I dont have to! If its the only one, then so be it, but I just wanted to know for future's sake.

If the '06 6.0l PSD is like the earlier '04 6.0's, then the coolant "SHOULD" be at the "Min" level, any higher and it will probably puke.
As for coolant, when I get my cooling system checked & flushed I usually use "CAT" Red.
