I guess it depends what version you are after.

http://www.redhat.com/ is a base starting point.

Oracle also have a sort of Enterprise version release at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/downloads/index.html

And if you want a free version, then Fedora and CentOS are built from the Red Hat code base.  A useful way to start learning with minimal costs.

Red Hat is not free.  You have to pay them for their support but if you don't want support, you cannot have it either.

The good news is that there are two clones of Red Hat available for free-- CentOS and Scientific Linux.  CentOS is little behind in versions.

They still don't have equivalent of RHEL6.  Scientific Linux does.

The best way to do virtualization in Red Hat is to use KVM, which is native to Red hat.  The second best way is Xen. These two come out of box with Red Hat.

Third way, I would say is VMWare.

Are you virtualizing Windows on Linux or Linux on Windows?

CentOS is pretty reliable.  If you are virtualizing Windows on top of Linux, you can use Xen or KVM.
