RHEL 9 is completely unsupported for many years. I recommend you purchase the current Red Hat from (in which case your support plan will allow you to ask these questions directly and get an official answer) or the free community-supported CentOS.

Ther is no such thing like RHEL 9, what you have there is Red Hat 9 (Codename Shrike), the predecessor of the Fedora distribution. It is totally unsupported for years and trying to install that on a modern system is a waste of time and will bring you nowhere.
Either buy a license for RHEL 6.3 (the current RHEL), use CentOS 6.3 (a free RHEL clone) or use Fedora 17.

sorry to nitpick, but it's RedHat 9. The RHEL naming came (I think) after RedHat 9 became obsolete. There is no RHEL 9.

Paraphrasing and emphasizing what snowpine says:
Dont try to use RedHat 9
Dont bother using ANY RedHat product unless you're going to pay them for support.

I've been a Red Hat / Fedora / CentOS user since the days when there was a Red Hat 9, but if this is your first Linux that may not be the way to go. CentOS for a server or business computer, yes, but Mint would be the best starting point for a home computer.
