first the current red hat is RHEL 6.4
it also is NOT a free operating system
you MUST buy the required support contract
--- there is no way around this ---
--- you have to buy it ---
-- desktop install on ONE machine

server install
based on Number of users ( could be over $6,000 )

buy the license or install one of the free rebuilds
CentOS 6.4
ScientificLinux 6.3

for RHEL 6.4
you need to install a RAID driver provided BY red hat
that you can only install with the paid subscription

CentOS has it as part of the os
that is unless this is a fake Microsoft software raid that is set up
if so turn it off
