Hi, I am new to Linux, my computer configuration is intel i3, 4GB...I want to install RedHat Linux...here are the different versions
https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/software/...ads/AllISOs.do
to download and install... I selected Red Hat Linux 7.3 i386....I don't know if it is right....
In its download part it has 5discs to download

Red Hat Linux is way out of date, all versions, don't install that. If what you want is Red Hat Enterprise Linux you have to pay for it. There are free versions of it, like CentOS and Scientific Linux. If you want the successor of Red Hat Linux install Fedora 15.

Red Hat Linux 7.3 : 06 May 2002 : Supported until 2003.

May work with hardware, that's 10 years old ( or older.) Don't use it.

Contemporary free versions of Redhat : See post # 2.
