Reg Redhat licensing


I'm planning to get redhat linux enterprise 5.4 OS for my office project. I need to decide on whether to go for Single/2 or unlimited socket and type of support like Premium or Gold, Years of Support like 1 or 3 years.

On what basis should I decide this?

I think you should call Red Hat directly for the most up to date answers to these questions. From inside the US you can call:
1-866-273-3428 x 45014

Definitely not on the basis of anyone who advises you that 5.4 is the current version!
Contact the good people at redhat.com, they will give you the latest sales pitch.

somasundaram1 rhel 5.4????
the current version in the 5 series is 5.6
and the CURRENT red hat version is " RHEL 6.0 "

i would use rhel 6 unless you MUST use and NEED to use some very old code and old versions of programs that there are NO NEW versions of .
