1. you should know that you have to pay for RHEL (unless you only want a trial version). Consider Centos; a free version of RHEL, inc updates but no support.

2. If Centos, go to www.centos.org and look for downloads section; download/burn (as image) and install. This will require ensuring your bios will boot from cd/dvd drive.
