Better use the Mirros on Redhat.com
or torrents.

What version of Redhat are you trying? You may want to try Fedora Core 6, Fedora is basically Redhat, and 6 is the most recent release. Only thing that sucks, is FC doesn't have a live mode(ie, you can run it from the DVD, before installing, check your hardware, etc.)

So if its your first Linux Install, You may want to try a version with a Live version, just to see what you think...

Some popular ones, Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS are pretty good..

I thought the OP meant they were using Red Hat currently and had problems downloading things, not that they wanted to download Red Hat.

That was my understanding as well.

It could be the ISP itself causing the problem. Some of them throttle you back or even terminate your connection during large downloads to conserve bandwidth. That sucks, but I've seen it with many users on various crappy ISPs.

Does this problem happen when you download from places other than Rapidshare? If not, it may be their problem, not yours.

Also, you could try using wget instead of your browser.

Do not download linux distros from Rapidshare or other sharing systems unless you are prepared to check the MD5sums of the downloads - they could be (maliciously) corrupted.
If you want FC6, try here:
