My apologies for the previous post. I misread your post thinking you were looking for CentOS 5.9. It looks like you have to have a subscription to RHEL in order to download 5.9 in which case, I do not own a subscription, therefore I cannot offer you a direct link to your request. Sorry.

Good for you.

I didn't realize RHEL could be downloaded free via mirrors? I learned something new today. Thanks.

Red Hat can be downloaded for free from Red Hat's website. You DO need an account (which is free), and from there you can download what you want. The only thing you pay for with RHEL is support and access to the Red Hat network for patches.

However, I would NOT use RHEL unless I was PAYING FOR IT, mainly because you won't get updates/patches/bugfixes, and your system stability drops quickly, which defeats the purpose of a long-term support OS like RHEL. CentOS is a better choice unless you're going to pay.

Interesting. I just assumed they offered a 30-day free trial like SUSE and then locked you out of their repositories if you decline their support service upon expiration.

That is indeed the case. However, that does not prevent you from freely downloading RHEL, and using it for as long as you'd like. Support/repository access expires after 30 days, but you can use RHEL for as long as you want, just like SuSE. You pay for support/updates, not for the distro itself.

Understood. Of all the public mirrors I've frequented over the past few years since using Linux, I must not have paid close enough attention, but I've never seen an RHEL iso until today, believe it or not. But yeah, it makes sense that RHEL would be available regardless if one chose to pay for access to support and repo's since it's FOSS. I'm a little slow today, I guess.

Nonetheless, thanks for the clarification, TB0ne.
