www.redhat.com

But......

Redhat isn't a free product (although you can get a 30 day evaluation). Why not use CentOS, which is the same and is free: www.centos.org

Note however that RHEL is a pay for distro (you get updates and phone/email support).
They do offer a 30 day free trial.

If you want a free version, go Centos, which is a free rebuild of RHEL that includes updates but not phone/email support.

have you even looked on the red hat web site ?

and why the old 5 series ?
It is starting to show it's age .

The current RHEL is 6.3
contact red hat sales
http://www.redhat.com/contact/sales.html

you will need to buy the required mandatory support contract
https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/desktop/


if you are not going to buy the required mandatory support contract , then do not use RHEL

instead install one of the free rebuilds like
CentOS 5.9 ( the old 5 series)
or
CentOS 6.3 ( the current)
http://centos.org/

Welcome to Linux questions!

If you're completely new, then start with one of the beginner-friendly distros. I suggest looking at Linux Mint and PCLinuxOS. They have live disks, so that you can try before you install, and they use very different user interfaces; that's a big difference to Windows — you can choose your GUI.

Useful tips:
Read the instructions before installing, especially the part about partitioning your hard drive.
If you need more software, always get it from your distributor's repository.
Don't put spaces in file or folder names.

Yep, I have paid RHEL58 in the office and free Scientific Linux at home and they are mutually compatible. SciLinux has more GUI toys installed and one can download LiveCD/LiveDVD or install and boot from a USB stick.
