Contact RH that is what you are paying for. You have to have a paid RH registration to use their updates.

You still have to have a paid RH registration to use their updates. You might look at Centos' repos. Centos is binary compatible with RHEL and is free to download/install.

I run Centos5 so I do not know if that exact link is correct, but I do know that many people start with RHEL and use Centos' repo. Check the wiki or google RHEL3 using Centos repo.

Centos5.X is essentially RHEL5.X. The only differences are the proprietary parts of RHEL have been removed.
You have RHEL3.

If you had googled what I suggested above
Quote:
google RHEL3 using Centos repo.
you would have found: as the first hit.

sorry, I'm not RH specialist.

using google, I found this:

http://mirror.centos.org/centos/3.3/os/i386/

and hope it's correct.
