If you have "internet 24-7" then you should download Fedora Core 4 or Fedora Core 5(this replaces the Red Hat 7,8,9. Red Hat no longer releases new versions of Red Hat 7,8,9. etc., )

Yes it is free. Linux is just the kernel that everything is built around. Fedora Core, Debian, Suse, Red Hat, etc.. are all different distrobutions that package the kernel and programs together. So yes it is Linux.

one more thing, can I install it on fat or fat32 file system or do I need to convert it to some other like the one from linux.
I have one harddisk size 40 gig.

You really should install it on a linux filesystem, but you can create a fat32 partition to allow Windows and Linux to share access to files there.
