Knoppix is a very good tool to use to trouble shoot a freezing problem like you have. Knoppix runs a complete Linux installation using only your system memory and CD drive. So in your case if you boot into Knoppix and find that your system freezes under Knoppix then it would point to hard ware failure and not a failure of your RHEL.

If there is a password problem you can use Knoppix to fix it. You can also use it to operate on your RHEL files/data.
