Difference in Redhat 9 and RHEL versions !

Hi all.

If it sounds stupid then my apologies but kindly help me clear this confusion. Usually when i search on internet for something related to linux, there are times when i encounter solutions for redhat 9. But when i see RHCE cert, it tests on RHEL 5. I did some research and came to know that they are indeed different distributions i guess,

can someone clear this pls ? is there a difference between RHEL x and Redhat x ?

RH9 is the old distribution. RHEL5 is the enterprise level. After RH9, Red Hat stopped giving away their distribution for free and charged customers for the support they provide. There are no RH9 or anything now and all are distributed as RHEL and RHEL6 is the latest.
You can see the red hat site for more information.
