To get updates from redhat you are going to have to have a subscription for redhat. As long as the server has been registered then you should be able to update.

If you don't have a subscription for redhat then I would suggest using something like centos or scientific linux.

There isn't a free repository for Red Hat. There are additional packages from EPEL, but those are for extra packages vs. used for the basis of updates/install.

As per post #2, either
1. pay for RHEL
OR
2. use eg Centos or SL instead.

The latter 2 automatically setup to point to their repos for you at install time.
These are basically rebuilds of RHEL and Centos in particular should be almost identical apart from some proprietary RHEL images/copyright stuff they cannot (legally) reproduce).
In practical terms, its pretty much binary compatible.; have a good read of their website and the Wikipedia article.
