Install fedora 12.
does that seem offensive ?
Fedora 9 has no updates and never will have.
download the Fedora 12 DVD or CDs and burn it/them.
When you boot from it/them edit the kernel line from grub to add
then at least you will be dealing with something that is supported before you ask questions.
Do it now or risk problems later.
I upgraded from 9 to 12 with no major issues, I can't guarantee that will last forever.
If you have installed any major programs, you may have to uninstall and reinstall them after the upgrade
. This will not affect the upgrade process.
