Hi, welcome to LQ!

The question you REALLY have to ask yourself is: why am I running a
distro that's been out of support for donkey's years?


Cheers,
Tink

you dont. i recommend fedora-13 live-usb which i think uses firefox 3.6 by default.
the command to install firefox would be
Code:
yum install firefox

Fedora is like redhat for desktops, comes with lots of goodies installed

EDIT: if you really want redhat download CentOS which is a redhat without the redhat logo nor the price

Hi,

As everyone else said. Red Hat 9 is dead and gone. If you want to use something like Red Hat, use Fedora, CentOS or RHEL. The first two are free, the last one is Red Hat and is $80 a year for basic single os desktop.
