Your distro is very outdated. The one you likelly want is Fedora.

Redhat 9 was relased year 2002, and declared obsolete 2004.

The only genuine "9" packages are probably the ones from
the Redhat "old archive"
http://ftp3.ie.freebsd.org/pub/redha.../redhat/linux/
→ 9/ and updates/

I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem.

Red Hat is WWWWAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY obsolete. If you want to stick with Red Hat-based distros, try Fedora. It's Red Hat based, more community developed, and is used as a testing platform for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
