As an alternative you might have a look at CentOS.
CentOS is a free Linux distrubtion which is 100% binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because it's a community-supported version there is no official technical support.

Just curious: you have Red Hat Server 6.5 - with support right? Then why did you not ask Red Hat in the first place?  It took me 1 search at the Red Hat site ;)

Hi Jansen,
I have Red Hat Server 6.5 Evaluation (WITHOUT support)...
...I did find the first link a couple days ago, but could not find an evaluation equivalent.

If you don't want to pay for it, then you should probably get CentOS like was suggested above.

Excellent everyone! Now I'm aware and confident of what my options are. I imagine CentOS is closer to Red Hat desktop than Fedora (?).
Many thanks, everyone!
