If you want an old version of RHEL, go to Red Hat's website and download it.

Hii..

Thank you for your reply, I tried that they don't provide a download option for this version and that's why I asked for a direct link or torrent link for that.

If you want a different link or torrent, then you need to go to Google and look one up. Again, 5.8 is old...the latest is 6.x, so why are you trying to download an old version to start with?

And sorry, but you CAN get 5.8 from Red Hat's website....

that is because you have to pay for RHEL, if you just want a comparable distro use CentOS instead.

That's true, but you CAN download RHEL for free. You just sign up on their website, and you can download it for free, and get 30 days of support. After that, you need to pay.

I totally agree with you about CentOS, if you're not going to pay for RHEL...pointless to put a production server in place, and leave it without support/updates/patches/etc.

that or buy the dev. license for $99/yr and get full support for most of the RH projects.
