Unless you have a lot of money to pay for RHEL, install CentOS. Basically, it's a clone of RedHat without logos and a few proprietary programs.
http://www.centos.org/

and then you can follow the installation tutorial:
http://www.howtoforge.com/installati...tos5.1-desktop

some more tutorials
http://wiki.centos.org/

http://tldp.org/

If you are going to use linux for work or home server, CentOS is an excellent choice.

If you just want to use it as a desktop computer at home, Fedora 9 would be more usable.

I second CentOS. Best distro ever, aside from the actual Red Hat! I just don't understand why Cent OS isn't more commonly used.
I would recommend the Michael Jang book on the RHCE exam. Even though you aren't going for your RHCE, it teaches you a lot about Linux, and specifically, about Red Hat.
