the Apache server IS ON the install dvd
it IS part of the normal everyday RHEL server install
normally RHEL is used for a server
NO GUI - no monitor, no lcd screen - hence headless
you remote TEXT ONLY login to it to administrate it
there is NO " graphical user interface "
now on a Desktop install ( say in the Lab or in the Office) Gnome2 is the default
but rhel5 is a bit old ( i think that RHEL5.0 shipped with firefox #1 or 2 - ff 15 is current )
so I can't go to rhn.redhat and specify my architecture and download the appropriate version ?
NO you DO NOT install any software on a unregistered install of RHEL
for the desktop install
but if you have to ask then YOU WILL NEED the $299/year USD license
Install one of the FREE rebuilds
but they are not good for home use
with the 7 to 10 year lifespan the software DOSE get a bit OLD
but for someone to stuff about learning I don't see any issue.
with out the license you do not install software
yum will not work
there are NO source/header files ( except for what is on the dvd) to even build software
it becomes a ROYAL pain to even TRY with out a paid for subscription
so much of a pain that installing CentOS is a WAY BETTER CHOICE
