2) When Red Hat boots in the virtual machine, it does not switch to VT7, which is where the graphical login will be
Did you get a graphical login when you installed Red Hat? Or was it character (ncurses) based? I'm not a virtual machine expert, but if your underlying video adapter hardware is relatively new, and your virtual machine software cannot emulate an older adapter, Red Hat 9 may not recognize it. See if there are any settings in your virtual machine software for emulating video hardware.
