you do know that REHL is not free , right.
pay for it and ask the sails rep .

or install CentOS 5.4
that is the free version .However cent/rhel is GREAT as a server and office , but NOT so good for home use .

Redhat has gone the M$ shit ways, because it took freely community contributed software and made it into a commercial product. It also has the broken software (latest development code not tested for release yet, of software GNU software) for the Fedora community to get frustrated and report problems and bugs as a testing grounds before software goes into Redhat. I say if you must go with Redhat look into CentOS instead of supporting Linux as a commercial software. For a desktop, Debian was created on good principles, and many of it's derivatives are nice too.
