If you want free versions of Redhat Enterprise then go for Centos Linux instead.  
It is the free equivalent version and binary compatible.

Try Scientific Linux CERN 6. It's binary compatible with RHEL6.

"The base SL distribution is basically [ Red Hat ] Enterprise Linux, recompiled from source.
Our main goal for the base distribution is to have everything compatible with Enterprise

I think no links for RHEL free downloads. When I was doing by RHEL course, I copied RHEL 5.0 from my sir and when I asked how did it get that and he replayed he just downloaded it. I've RHEL 5.0(DVD) and I thought we could easily freely download it. Ok no problem

A small clarification, I'll try CentOS but why not Fedora which is also said to be RHEL based. Which is best CentOS or Fedora?

CentOS is exactly RedHat, no differences except for name.

Fedora is the experimental operating system.  It is not stable.  It is meant for testing new features for future RedHat releases.

Yes, sorry, I actually downloaded RedHat 6 beta for free almost two months ago.  But now it appears that they have brought it down.
