I checked this out too, and it seems the ISOs are *not* available for
general download - mine are paid for.

However, as another alternative: RedHat now has an educational version
for $50 - that's effectively ES3 with a somewhat modified kernel
(includes amd64, if I've got it right). In fact, I compiled my own
2.6.0-test9 kernel.org kernel, since I need ACPI power control and the
RH kernel doesn't have it.
