I would like to whether oracle enterprise linux is free distribution or not. If it is not free, please suggest what the preferred linux distribution(exclude RHEL) to install Oracle 11g. Thanks in advance.

Sorry, but I'm afraid your information is outdated and hence wrong. Oracle public yum includes patches and errata for free. Here is a link to the note from March 2012: http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/1563775
Installing and running Oracle Linux is free according to GNU General Public License version 2 and you can use it even to run your business. Check https://linux.oracle.com
