Now, I am the last person to try to enforce Red Hat's licensing on anyone**, so it is not my intent to quote to you the license terms. But the reality is that if you use RHEL then the only way you will be able to support it is by paying them their 20 pieces of silver and not trying to pass that cost along to others by seeking free support for an unsupportable installation.
A much better choice would be to use one of the supportable and FREE GNU/Linux operating systems and show Red Hat your tail lights! If you must have a Red Hat clone then try CentOS - 99.9% RHEL but still free. Then people can help you without
along with you, and everyone can
and be happy!
