    Red Hat 6.2 was released almost 9 years ago, so I'd highly recommend using a later version if you want good hardware detection/support.

    You can check the following HowTo for making sure you properly download the ISO files and burn them to disk as images:

    You can find system requirements for CentOS 5, here:

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2

    Those requirements should hold true for Red Hat Enterprise Linux as well, since CentOS is the basically the same system, but without the Red Hat logos and the paid support channel.

    You can find lots of information about most Linux distributions, including whether or not they are available free of charge, at DistroWatch.com, but yes, the majority of Linux distributions are available for free as a downloadable ISO images.

    It's generally best to experiment a bit with Linux to decide for yourself what distribution works best with your computer hardware, and what best suits your personal tastes in a Linux distribution. You can check the link in my signature for some information to help you get started, and there are a couple of quizzes there that might help you to pick your first distribution, or two.

    Hope it goes well and you have lots of fun with it.
