      1. RHEL is not free. You can get the trial version…
        After the 30 day trial finishes, the system will not stop running, but you won’t get updates.

        If you want something free, try CentOS (which is a RHEL clone).

  2. this is a very nice product for one who is crazzy about the world of networking
    it involves many features which make it unique and trustworthy. moreover its easy to understand

  3. I want RHEL5 server. What version of centOS is almost clone of RHEL5 server ? If there is no difference between cent OS and REEL5 server, why people should buy RHEL5 server for their application. We are going to test our application in RHEL5.

    Pl. suggest .
