What possessed you to install Red Hat 9? It's obsolete now and you'd be better off installing a new, supported distribution. One reason is that your hardware will most likely be better supported..

If you want to use legacy software, the best option would be to run it on an older machine from around that time, or from a virtual machine.

There isn't much of a chance of such an old kernel working well with new hardware, it works great with new kernels though.
