rhel for practice at home

Hi friends,

I am planning to go for RHEL 3 certfication and I dont know where I can find RHEL 3 to practice. I dont want to spend my money on costly training...instead I believe in learning it at home.

Could anyone tell me where I could find RHEL 3 to install at my home for practice.

You can signup on their site for a demo account. Gives you full access to download the application. As well, using RH9 is quite close to EL.

Alternatively, get Whitebox Linux - it's RHEL, minus the words RedHat

Thanks freinds for your advise.....I have got some more info on that. White box is really useful.

Here is another link for RHEL 3

It says that the binary version of rhel3 is not for free but you can download the source code for rhel3 and compile it yourself to get your own RHEL 3.

Vapour, you said that RH9 is close to EL but does it have all the tools which have been added in rhel3. If I work on RH9, will I be able to try all the enterprise features of RHEL3.

I've been using RHEL 3.0 ES at work for the last 3 months and to me it seems that Fedora is the counterpart personal/devel version of Red Hat Enterprise. RH 9.0 is getting older and acts like an 8.0, 9.0 etc version. I have Fedora running at home and it looks and feels like RHEL but without a few programs (although I'm not quite sure which). As far as running the systems and learning how to tweak RHEL... I'd say get either White Box or Fedora and don't bother with RH 9.0
