Hi and welcome to LQ.

We're not mind readers so without any context it's next to impossible to say which Red Hat Enterprise Linux will be best for YOU.

RHEL (the latest version 6.2) comes for at least 2 architectures i386 and x86_64.

Why do you want Red Hat Enterprise Linux? If you're preparing for RHCE exams, you might be better off using CentOS, which is a free recompiled version
of RHEL.

The best place will probably be their website.

If you are not going to PAY for RHEL, you should not use it. CentOS is 99.X% identical to RHEL, and includes access to the online updates/repositories, which RHEL won't unless you pay.

Oracle unbreakable *nix was pretty good. Centos too - is equally workable.

CentOS 6.1 is just out and you will be able to get any extra software you need, and updates (which Red Hat is not going to give you, unless you pay them). Read the CentOS documentation at their website and you can't go wrong. Everything you learn by using CentOS will apply to Red Hat, so if you need to learn RH it's the ideal tool. And if you don't need to learn RH, CentOS is still a great distro. I shall be using it to replace Fedora this week, and not before time.
