Hi,

if you want to learn RHEL (Redhat Enterprise Linux), you should probably use CentOS or perhaps Scientific Linux.

Put "redhat is not free" into your favourite search engine to understand why.

if you want RHEL6.3 you can download it from the red hat web site
BUT it is NOT FREE and REQUIRES a support contract

the Standard 1 year DESKTOP license is $299 per year EVERY YEAR
the STD 1 year SERVER license is
-- well go look
https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/server/

or

install the free CentOS 6.3
or
Scientific linux 6.2

You have to have a Red Hat login at redhat.com in order to get to the download page:
https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/software/...pportedISOs.do

To the best of my knowledge, you actually pay for the support, not the bits. I test with Red Hat 6.3 (unsupported) by adding the contents of the DVD to a repo, allowing me to use yum to install additional programs.

CentOS is probably the next closest (as previously mentioned), and you can use the online repos for free.
