I wonder where all those people get RH9. It's no longer maintained, so you will get no bugfixes for your system.

I think you should find it in /etc/inittab. Look for a line containing initdefault and switch to a proper value. "3" should stand for command line login, 4 or 5 for graphical login.
If you want to go safe with this search for "init" or "initdefault".
