Might need to start at this link.

Do you have a copy of Red Hat?

it's simple if you have installed Virtualbox on your computer (let's say Windows)
- download an ISO image of the Linux Distro you want, to some place on your hard drive
- in VirtualBox - VirtualMachine settings set device DVD-ROM to that Linux ISO image
- make the Hard drive settings for Virtual machine,
- set the network of Virtualmachine to Bridged mode,
- start the Virt. machine
and it boot's up from the DVD (ISO image) to install

follow the installation procedure ...

Smile MySql on RedHat ES under VM

yes, my question was too confusing, right could be - where can i find free copy of red hat Linux to install it on Virtual Box under Windows 7 - i need this installation to simulate My SQL server (no WAMP) on Red Hat Enterprise server . If it's not available which Linux (OpenSuSe, Ubuntu or ..) is similar. Thank you

CentOS is RHEL without the branding basically. You can find it here As far as I'm aware, there are no "free" copies of RHEL. You must have a license to use it but I'm really not too familiar with how their system works so I can't be dogmatic about that.

It used to be that Red Hat offered a limited time trail (I think it was 60 or 90 days) that you could sign up for. I'm not sure if they still do or not. But as basica said, CentOS is a free re-build of RHEL. I've been using Scientifi Linux (another free re-build) a bit lately and like it quite a bit. Either would probably suit your needs. If you're not wedded to Red Hat based distros, just about every Linux distro on the planet (except for specialized ones) has a MySQL package. I personally like Debian, Slackware, and Arch for servers, but if you're going to be working in a Red Hat environment it's best to learn the Red Hat way (i.e. CentOS, Scientific, or maybe Fedora if you don't mind living on the bleeding edge of Red Hat development).
