As far as I know, you can install software on Red Hat in the shape of
RPM's. And the easiesst way to get RPM's and install them is with Red Hat's
software management tool called "yum". It should be as easy as opening some
terminal and typing:
yum install git-core
According to the RH version
2.6.18 is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (*Tikanga*), and Red Hat have been
using yum since this version I think (I don't use Red Hat myself though).

And if for some reason it will not work with yum, you could try this
