Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I use Google Chrome, Firefox, or Opera. Depends on what mood I am in I guess. There is a package called IEs4Linux to give you Internet Explorer 6 and below, but it is not the same as on Windows. If I ever install Internet Explorer on my Linux machine it is only to test some web development stuff, Otherwise I just stay away from it.
I think your challenge is miscommunication and not knowing the difference between Windows and Linux. I am going out on a Limb here so I will preface this with I might be wrong and you actually do want Internet Explorer on Linux. But all in all I am assuming you meant where is the web browser in RedHat since Internet Explorer is the default Microsoft web browser that comes with Windows. It has been about 7 years since I used RedHat 9 or earlier, so I do not remember what browsers come with it. I think it comes with Mozilla Firefox, but like I said I can't really remember. I know the newer versions of RedHat Enterprise Linux come with Firefox.
1. If this is really RH9 (codename Shrike), then its years old and out of date ie hasn't been updated in years: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Linux
I recommend Centos http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CentOS, the free version of Redhat Enterprise Linux (v5.4). Fedora is RH's R & D distro, bleeding edge.
2. What you want is the web browser for Linux, which is Firefox by default on RH. IE is an MS only browser.
