If you mean RedHat Enterprise (RHEL), it is not free. You are supposed to pay for it.

You can get CentOS ( a free clone of RHEL), or Fedora

Thanks Pixellany,
I`d like to test a distro very similar to RedHat that uses the same repositories and same package manager...
Which one would you recommend?
Both distros seem not to have a Server edition. Can I still upgrad them to be server after installed?

Regardless of your opinion LQ doesn't condone any form of warez activity. So do not offer that kind of advice.

Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. Part of what RH is charging for is access to their repos, so you cannot use their repos without paying. Centos' packages are built with RH's source code, just with the proprietary stuff removed. Centos has a very good working relationship with RH and so their repo is usually only a couple of days behind RH's (often it is on the same day).
