Omm i would not recomended that,

if you want to install Redhat or Any OS always download from Vendor

why ??

1. File could be temptated , so you might get some file which as some builtin script so your server would be accessible by any hacker

2. Rapid share is  those people who dont want to pay but want to get the originial copy, and for OS or software which would be installed in yoru system, then NO , DONT DO THAT .


if you want to get Same thing of Redhat 5( paid software) then download Centos 5

its samething , just logo is different

 download Centos from here http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/isos/

If you really really really want Redhat then you can download a 30day eval, after the 30days it's just not supported...

I prefer to use CentOS as mentioned by fosiul.... cos it's free with free updates... though you can donate to the project if you like.

You could also have a go with OEL 5.x (Oracle Enterprise Linux ) which is based on the Redhat EL kernel.
