First, RedHat enterprise (RHEL) is on version 5.4 and Fedora is on version 12. You need to clarify which one you are interested in.

Second, the websites should give system requirements. Here's what I found for Fedora 12:

RHEL http://www.redhat.com/rhel/compare/ .
If you want free, go with Centos; a free version of RHEL.

From the version nums you've mentioned, sounds like you might be thinking of the the old Redhat Linux series, which is long obsolete;

Thank you.
In this thread, you seem to be asking a very similar question (ok, you've dropped one of the obsolete versions of Red Hat, but the question is along very similar lines); normally you would go to the Red Hat site for this kind of information, but, presumably, with these versions being so long obsolete, Red Hat no longer consider this information to be even of historical interest.

In neither of the threads, so far, have you indicated why you have decided that you need an old version of Red Hat, rather than a modern, small, distro, which would be a more easy-to-recommend approach.

thanks, I will keep centos and fedora in mine. I was able to order and old book with cd rom of version 7.3 red hat . That is the highest version I could use with this machine who needs a floopy disk to install because bios will not load from cdrom. Why red hat ,many ask. well for the easy instructions to follow available in online doc. also that it did work in this machine before with not to much problem on hardware comptability. I finally found the requirement from books in amazone.com web site. I will wait for the book and cd rom in the mail and I will let you know updates on it. It should take about 1 month.
