Okay, It's early in here and I just woke up but if I understand the situation correctly you burned the image to CD as an image file, right? Then if you boot up from the CD it can't read it and then goes to RH9. You should check, have you burned the CD correctly. I can't help you with that as I haven't burned CD's with linux, yet.
