Hi,

please use a more descriptive subject in future.

I suspect you mean RHEL 5.8, if so, then go ahead and do it. However I suspect you may actually do better with CentOS 5.8 (unless you actually want to pay for RHEL supoort).

The current RHEL 5 is RHEL 5.9
but it is not free!
You MUST buy the required support contract
contact red hat sales to buy it


or
install CentOS
A free rebuild of RHEL

but unless you MUST USE !!! the older rheel5 for legacy software .You are better off installing RHEL 6.4 -- the current version of red hat .

Hi and welcome to LQ!
As said, next time use a title more specific so that more people can help you
RedHat is not free. So maybe you should look for CentOS.

Please be more specific of your requirement, for what purpose you need RHEL OS? Tell us your requirement and maybe some other OS fullfill your need. You may save your money.
You may checkout this link, if it helps you. http://iso.linuxquestions.org/

The only way you can get it free is to pirate it, and even then, you would not get updates or support. The closest legal way is to download Fedora, Red Hat's community os which is free.

No, sorry, that's wrong. Red Hat Enterprise is absolutely free to download and use, for as long as you'd like to. What you pay for is support/updates, and an operating system that's been tested and certified with other pieces of software (such as Oracle), to function properly with it. Red Hat's licensing terms can be found on their website, and can be verified by talking with Red Hat.

The closest thing to Red Hat Enterprise is CentOS...it's 99.x% identical to RHEL, but community supported. Fedora is the 'bleeding-edge' distro, which is more consumer-grade, and not focused on servers. Fedora will support things like bluetooth, sound, wifi, etc....things that typically are NOT on servers.

You can easily download it without paying...but you DO have to sign up for a (free) RHEL account first, which gets you 30 days of free support/updates. Red Hat has NEVER asked for payment before download.

We're not that kind of forum.

Again, you are totally wrong; there is no other way to say it.

I went to Red Hat's website and began a download of RHEL6 a few minutes ago...no credit-card needed, no payment needed, just sign up. If you don't think it's true, then call Red Hat's sales department yourself, check their website, or ask one of the THOUSANDS of people you can easily find how much they paid for their Red Hat installations.

Again, it is freely available and easy to get.

Only if you have company/private email you will get the download link. not possible for gmail/hotmail/yahoo type emails.

Also, on a different note, i find it strange most people have never heard of CentOS. one of my friend and his colleagues who are working in Solaris (veritas volume manager) from past 7-8 years have never heard of CentOS. I spent 1 hour convincing him that CentOS is RHEL Clone, and after through research on internet, he finally agreed.

Sorry, that's wrong...I sent it to a Yahoo account, and it worked just fine.

I agree with that totally. CentOS certainly isn't a secret, and documentation is abundant.
