Did you try looking at Red Hat's website first?
http://www.redhat.com

Red Hat has a 30-day trial on their website. After that, you'll have to purchase a subscription. I don't know if they still offer 5, so I would talk to a sales rep about it.

Please note that while RHEL is built on open-source software, the binary distribution of it is not free. Asking where to download a direct build of Red Hat's ISO image is probably against LQ rules.

Not against the rules at all...and sorry, but Red Hat IS free. What you pay for is support/bugfixes /patches and access to the online repositories.

and while it is " ?? possible ?? " to install software on a unregistered copy

it is SO MUCH EASIER to buy it and pay the yearly subscription
or install CentOS or Scientific linux

than to mess around with a unregistered copy

No, Red Hat has trademarks and logos that prevent binary distribution by other parties. That's why the clones can't reconstruct the source RPMs as is and say, "Here you go, free Red Hat!". Yes, you could just allow the free 30-day trial to expire and run it that way, but that's not really beneficial for the user. If I were to post a link to a RHEL ISO on my own mirror or to a torrent here, I'm sure that would cause a problem for LQ.

No, again...sorry.

Red Hat is free to distribute, and there are already MANY torrents for it. You can download it for free, and use it for free. CentOS, BTW, is just that...RHEL built from source RPM's. It's not distributed as Red Hat, and trying to sell ANYTHING and billing it as something else is illegal. Trying to sell a kit-car that LOOKS like a Ferrari is totally legal, as is building it. Trying to sell it AS a Ferrari isn't. Feel free to verify this with Red Hat, and the GPL and this very topic has been discussed several times on this very site previously.

Running unsupported is not a recommended way to do thing, and the OP was directed to both Scientific Linux and CentOS.

Thank you everyone for your kind replies.

If I am not wrong, Red Hat used to provide all previous versions on its website. I saw it when I registered as a RH user first time, but all are gone.

Anyway, I got it again from http://rhel.ieesee.net/uingei/. Wish you guys enjoy a lot there!

As above, that means no updates and no supports if you don't pay RH.
You'll have to do all that yourself, but in that case it would be easier to get Centos; at least you'd get updates
