Why do you need such an old version? And why can't you subscribe to Red-Hat? That is the only legal way to get their OS's. You can subscribe for free and use it in trial mode until it runs out (you can keep on using it after the trial ends, but updates will cease to function after that).

If you really can't use the trial version, then get Centos, which is a clone of Red-Hat, but free, and it doesn't require a subscription. But also there I'd suggest getting the newest version, although they still have version 5.11 available (it's the final release for the 5.x branch, and has just been published today):

There is also version 5.10 available, but no earlier version. I'd recommend the procedure rindi mentioned.

Just contact Red Hat and ask I would say, this being an urgent question and all:

If you have an active paid for subscription to the Redhat Network you can download ISO images for all the Redhat releases back to 4.0 (so yes you can download the ISO's for 5.3, I just logged on and checked).  This does however require an active paid for subscription to Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server.

If the reason you need 5.3 is due to software compatibility i would check for updates to the software you are running since 5.3 was released 20 January 2009 and is prone to many exploitable CVE's and is not wise to run (Redhat 5.11 is the newest and was just released).
