Yes, just not official RH packages. You can compile from source or install third-party RPMs all you want.

Just switch to CentOS.

No subscription, RH EL5 : Don't use it.

Use a free version of Redhat EL5 instead :
CentOS 5.5 http://www.centos.org/
EL 5 and CentOS 5.x are identical. ( No image of a red hat on CentOS.)


Another free one : https://www.scientificlinux.org/
..

P.S. : You can install software on RH EL, takes a lot of skill.

..
