Hi,

RedHat can be downloaded from any of the sites listed at http://www.linuxhelp.ca/isos/index.php#redhat

If you use DHCP for Windows right now, you should be able to use DHCP when setting up RedHat. If you have static IP(s) in Windows, you will need to provide that information for RedHat during the setup (Ip address, subnet mask, default gateway, DNS server)
