Reason: title fixed
Please do not post threads with a title of "Urgent". Use something descriptive of your question. (I have fixed the title.)
RedHat 9 is hopelessly obsolete. Head over to http://distrowatch.com and pick something more modern. Common advice is anything in the top ten on their "hit list". If you specifically need RedHat, then look at Fedora or CentOS.
I'm starting to wonder if there's someone who travels around Africa and India with a suitcase full of Redhat 9 CDs saying to people 'Hey, have you ever heard of Linux? No? It's great, you should try it! Here, have a few copy. If you have any problems just go to www.linuxquestions.org and ask for help.' Then they run away hide around the corner and let out an evil laugh. They're expenses are paid by Microsoft. I can't imagine why else people keep posting here about Redhat 9 so long after it ceased to be relevant.
Interesting. And bizarre that it's so high up on the list. Maybe the warning should be bigger and sterner. Something the lines of 'Redhat 9 is utterly obsolete and will not work on modern hardware. Unless you are fully aware of what Redhat 9, do not download it because it is not useful to you."
Thanks guys for you contributions, i use (OpenSuse 10.3) and it worked fine. you guys the bomb.
So having managed to avoid a version of Linux that's obsolete by about 7 years, you've gone with one that's only obsolete by about two years. Sigh. openSUSE 10.3 is no longer supported. 11.2 is the current version, 11.3 is due out soon.
