You can download RedHat 5.1 from any of the mirrors listed at: http://www.redhat.com/mirrors.html

Here are three of the servers listed in this document:

      ftp.lame.org                  /mirrors/redhat
      linuxwww.db.erau.edu            /pub/linux/distrib/redhat
      ftp.cc.gatech.edu                  /pub/linux/distributions/redhat

You might also try ftp://ftp.debian.org, or http://www.debian.org for the website attached to it.  The website should have basic instructions on it on which files to download.  

Debian used to also provide CD images of their latest distributions, so look around for those, too, if you have a burner.
