I would take a look a these CentOS howtos to get started. CentOS is the community edition of RHEL. It's pretty much identical to what Red Hat provides in their version of the distro.

Thank you for your reply. Can i go ahead with the same thing or i have to change any commands accordingly? –  subbarao Apr 29 '13 at 9:22
The commands should all be the same. –  slm Apr 29 '13 at 9:23
But note that newer kernels might require changes in compiler, glibc, and assorted userland utilities. –  vonbrand Apr 29 '13 at 14:25
