Didn't someone ask this question yesterday? I certainly posted a reply on
the topic some time this week. Anyway.
1) Use apt. Debian people will love you.
2) Use the redhat network. first one's free. In fact, you can have multiple
registered machines as long as you don't mind switching your free entitled
server from one to the other.
3) Use one of the sixty bazillion scripts doing the rounds (autorpm is the
canonical one, I believe) which scrape the updates.redhat.com mirrors
and offer you packages to install. I've got one myself which only offers
to install upgrades for things you already have, as opposed to yanking
the entire heap of RPMs into your lap.
4) google or search freshmeat - someone's writing a server that emulates
the redhat-network one.
and, of course
5) Install debian. You know you want to.
Waider. RedHat kinda guy.
