mmmmm...I see what you're trying to get at, V!NCENT, but even though this is a thread with a general title which was started by rony2, the specifity of his question was not reflected in the title, but was in the original post (OP).
Now, as for the RedHat question, I'm just going to say, free RedHat (no longer available for free use past version 9.0) is QUITE old, and is perhaps, not the best distro to start out with for a user who is completely new to Linux.
Linux is a wheel, like any other, but a very round wheel at that - I consider Windows a somewhat bent, disfigured wheel. No matter which distribution you start out with, you are still going to have to learn how to ride the new bike with a nice set of wheels, instead of transferring what you've learned from the old bike (...the one with the bent wheels).
