In what way were the answers in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-to-rh-741422/ not good or clear enough?

Where, unSpawn, did you see a link to a redhat iso in that post?

and, the post concerned CentOS specifically

So, I'll ask again:

Is there a link to a redhat iso image somewhere?

No I mean you said "I wanna learn redhat's syntax, system stuff" and in that thread it was made clear that Centos is good for learning RHEL?

And in answer to your original question, Red Hat has restrictions on its trademarks and logos and such that prevent redistribution of ISOs of recent versions. If you want to learn your way around a Red Hat-family Linux, try Fedora, or, for the closest possible experience... CentOS. : P

Oh
sorry
I misunderstood
My apologies brother

Yes, I want to learn redhat badly

as maybe getting certified and having experience in many distro's
syntax and methods of operation will also help too

I've been on unemployment pay since I joined this forum in January
it's gonna end at some point, and I don't really want to continue being a
high-paid cabinet installer
as I always wanted to keep all 10 digits anyway

But, thanks for the help
as everything I've learned in Linux is from you guys!

karamarisan, that's what I figured
Maybe I can get a hacked version from China?
lol

I can't find the damn CentOS-5.3 installer!
on the livecd?

how do I install centos to my hd?

it says the hd installer is in the livecd
so what do I do?

Oh, so how much is a redhat iso, like $50 or what?
thanks

Have you tried booting the Live CD? It should be fairly straightforward, though I've never done it.

What you buy isn't the ISO. Red Hat makes money by selling subscriptions - support and access to update servers - which are fairly costly. If you get to know your way around CentOS or Fedora, you'll be right at home if you're ever put in charge of a RHEL machine.

How to get RHEL ISO?

Easy...register here (it's free): https://www.redhat.com/wapps/ugc/register.html..._cECD6C9FF-4C3D-8819-111E-E913

Then request a 30-day trail of RHEL here: http://www.redhat.com/rhel/details/eval/

Once you get your 30-day trail you can log into your account on Red Hat's site and you will be able to download RHEL.

Fast. Easy. Free.

FWIW...

I used CentOS to get my RHCE...

The first time I saw RHEL was when I took my test...so is CentOS the same as RHEL? My RHCE says so

Not sure what you mean by installer...but here is some links to the ISO

32-bit: http://mirror.steadfast.net/centos/5.3/isos/i386/
64-bit: http://mirrors.rit.edu/centos/5.3/isos/x86_64/

Net install won't really do you any good unless you plan on doing an HTTP or NFS install...

(the links above have DVD ISOs)

I recall that Red Hat provides a version called "Fedora" which is free-of-charge. Otherwise, their business model is that you (must) pay for ongoing support, which they dutifully provide. It's just how they do things, and yes, it is legally enforceable. It's also a good deal, in the eyes of a lot of people.

You pay for support and updates...

You can run RHEL without a problem...you just won't get support/updates.
