Please suggest mirror sites for RHEL5
I wish to install packages via YUM in RHEL5. Please let me know the mirror sites to include in /etc/yum.repos.d/<name>.repo file.
Thank you.

Centos is the free version of RHEL. Check out their website.

Pay for it from RedHat and ask them.

Thanks for the replies. AlucardZero, I installed ubuntu before and after connecting to internet, when I typed apt-get update all packages are installed 100%. I have the installation key for RHEL 5? will it be of any use?...Actually what is the use of that key?
knudfl and lazlow...., Thanks for your suggestions....

If you have an installation key then you have a support contract? I would go to RedHat's site and search there, or ask RedHat directly. What does Ubuntu have to do with your question?

What I meant is that in ubuntu we can freely download all the packages through apt-get update, but why in RHEL 5 it is not possible....? sorry for misleading you.

Red Hat uses a different business model then Ubuntu. They only distribute (as far as I know) binaries to customers who purchase the OS.
