RedHat 5.3 Screenshot for installation

Out of the blue..someone asked “where to get the ISO image for latest RedHat ?”

Just go to http://www.redhat.com

click on top menu called “Downloads

For the lazy bum.. here it is..


.. Oh wait, you need to be an active subscriber before you can download the files..
scroll down a bit from the download page..

there it is

If you do not have an active subscription:
* Purchase from the Red Hat Store
* Free 30-day evaluation subscription

Click on “Free 30-day evaluation subscription”.. or https://www.redhat.com/rhel/details/eval/
you will have to provide some information and email address, bla..bla.. then Redhat will assign a account number to you.
together with active subscription.

Then.. log in as a newly created user, go to “Downloads”.. can start download the ISO files from there. “”

If you have an active subscription:
* Download your software here

or something like this one.


The url given in the ISO list come with some sort of session key.. that url can be used with wget command also..

Ok. after downloaded the ISO file.. around ~ 2.9 Gb ~
can just write it into DVD-blank and do the rest.
