about  how many pc's we have and if there any way to read full license for

I am talk specially about RHEL 5.0 or further official release. thanks

Really you want to ask Red Hat about this.

RHEL is a support and services package rather than just bits of code so
you need one license per supported system. If you have a large number of
machines contact the sales department and talk about company wide
licensing options.

If you need support for each machine then from my own experience I can tell you you will need a separate license for each. Without a license you won't be able to update from the the redhat repositories.

You could technically just buy one license, update only 1 machine and copy over the RPMS to your own internal repository so you can still update all the other machines from your repo although I am not sure about the legal ramifications on that one. Therefore this is just an idea.

If you do not need support from redhat then you will be better off running Centos 5.1 which is a rebuild of Redhat.
