Yum is the preferred choice and one can use apt is desired but is not supported by Red Hat.

If you want to install RHEL5 then either pay for support and register or use one of the 100% binary freely available clones like CentOS or Scientific Linux;

Even if it is theoretically possible, trying to use the Debian package management system on a RedHat (or any rpm-based distro) is going to be more trouble than it is worth.

More generally, trying to use a paid distro without paying for it is also going to be more trouble than it is worth. There are plenty of free options.

Centos5 is RedHatel5 with the logos removed. It has its own repos, five years of support, and is free to download.

It wouldn't be problematic if he installed the version of apt which manages rpms instead of debian packages (like PCLinuxOS). The only stumbling block would be finding apt repos for RHEL and related distros because most repos seem to be based on YUM (although in the past there were many apt repos for redhat/fedora).

I think the apt versions that were written for Fedora (post FC5?) used that same repos as yum. If it is speed that you are looking for (multiple connections at once) the smart package manager does this and more. It is available for most distros.
