From RedHat after you pay your subscription.

You can download and evaluate RHEL as well. https://access.redhat.com/downloads

You may also check out Centos or Scientific Linux since they are free repackages of RHEL.

Do you have a particular reason for wanting version 5? The current 32-bit version is 6. If you want to use it and not just evaluate it, and if you don't want to pay, then CentOS is the real thing: the only difference is the lack of patented software and the labeling.

Im unsure what 'patented' software you are talking about but:

Your assumption that there are only two differences is incorrect. There are more differences, such as these:
  • Centos is built from RHEL source released 'whenever'. Centos is always lagging behind Red Hat because of this. Security patches take days to weeks to filter to Centos so a 0-day vulnerability might go unpatched in Centos for longer.
  • There is no official support for Centos, although some Red Hat shops will support Centos
  • There is no way to get certified on Centos. This breaks the rules of some companies which will not allow Centos to be installed on their servers, because no one can be certified to run them.
  • They remove the branding and artwork from the distro and replace it with Centos branding and artwork. The labeling, ie the name Red Hat, does not have to be removed from everything. A quick grep will confirm this. This is because of the special license in place for those files/programs.
  • Centos is based off the AS version of RHEL. Whereas RHEL comes in flavors of AS, WS, PWS and ES.
  • Red Hat will continue to support a 'point release' such as 5.6, whereas Centos abandons point releases after an update. "You are on your own" as Centos says.

unless you 100% MUST USE the older legacy 5 series
-- like for old 10+ year old hardware
the current older 5 is RHEL 5.10
BUT
using the current stable RHEL 6.5 is VERY recommended
or test your software on the NEW released RHEL 7.0

BUT
Redhat Enterprise Linux is NOT FREE!!!!
You do NEED to buy the required support contract
-- there are no "if's, and's, or but's" on that
see the prices in the store
https://www.redhat.com/wapps/store/catalog.html

or

use the FREE Cent
Centos 5.10
CentOS 6.5
and
CentOS 7.0
are the ONLY supported versions

@ szboardstretcher

1. CentOS may have lagged in the past, but it is hardly likely to do so in the future, now that it's been effectively taken over by Red Hat. CentOS 7 arrived less than a month after RH7: it used to take much longer than that.

2. If CentOS is so vulnerable, why does it always show up as the first or second most popular Linux on webservers?

3. When I said they were compatible, I was referring to what you download. Support, etc is obviously a different matter.

4. By patented software, I meant software patented in the USA. (What else?) RHEL can include it by charging, CentOS (and Fedora) can't. It was ages before I discovered that setting subpixel-smoothing in Fedora didn't actually do anything: it had been disabled because RH's lawyers said there was a patent on the algorithm.

I was just mentioning information from Red Hat and Centos official sites, and showing that there are more than two differences.

Possibly a nit, but "64 bit supported in 32-bit mode" doesn't exist. The system runs in 64 bit mode, and that can support 32 bit applications if the appropriate libraries are installed.
