Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you need to purchase RHEL.

You might want to consider downloading CentOS 5 instead. It's very similar to RHEL 5 and can be downloaded for free:

RHEL is not free, you need to purchase it. If you want the free version, use CentOS

RHEL I think does have a trial though but yes you do require a license to run it. All though in order for them to use Linus Torvalds Kernel they must release their sources to the public. So their comes CentOS from RHEL sources which is a free opensource version. So CentOS is pretty much RHEL with out some features of RHEL.
