RHEL 5.1 server DVD MD5 sum
I found to download RHEL 5.1 from . Is this legal? I want to use it just for testing purposes. Does someone have md5 sum of server i386 dvd so I can compare them to check if the image file is not modified (virus or something).

Use CentOS 5.1. It's compiled from the same source as RHEL but is free. I've used this distro for years and haven't seen and major differences between it the RHEL. The documentation is also the same.

I want to perform some simple benchmarks to see if RHEL is faster then CentOS, since we don't know which compiler they use.

I suggest you go to, click on Downloads. Then "Free 30-day evaluation subscription". That way you'll be sure you're using the real deal for your evaluation.
