Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Of course, you will have to have a current support aggreement to do it....
That's both correct and incorrect.
The download location is correct; however, you do NOT have to pay for RHEL to download it or use it...you register/log in to their website for free, and download away. What you DO have to pay for is patches/bugfixes/security updates/support. And if you're going to build a server with RHEL, and NOT pay for it, that's a VERY BAD IDEA. Your server will be insecure and unstable VERY quickly, and loading new software will be MUCH more difficult. If you want RHEL for free, load CentOS.
And OP, why are you loading RHEL to start with, and why aren't you loading the latest version, which is 6.5??? And please, OP...try to look things like this up, rather than asking people to look them up for you.
Chuckling...I unfortunatly have the experience TBOne has eluded to. With Redhat everything past go (the os dl)costs you plenty. I tried but never could get a stable system functioning. I second the notion of using CentOS.
Looks like they've tightened up their policy; you've got (in that img) RHEL7 (next beta) or RHEL3 (no longer supported) or RH9 (also no longer supported).
Maybe you have to supply some sort of credentials eg a contact email/phone to get a trial of current release.

If you sign up with a 'personal' account, you won't see it. If you sign up with a corporate account, you can. Both are free, but the corporate one is the type that will get you the 30 day evaluation period w/downloads of different versions.
But I agree totally...if you're going to use RHEL, you need to pay for it. Otherwise, use CentOS....putting a server in place at a company that you KNOW had no support/updates/patches/fixes, and that installing new software on will be MUCH harder, is a recipe for headaches later. CentOS gets free updates...RHEL doesn't.
