Did you check in the Redhat FTP site? All versions of the old Redhat Linux are available from there. Is there any specific reason why your friend needs Redhat 9. Its kind of outdated now and Redhat no longer provides any support or upgrades for it. You could be better off going with Fedora Core which is essentially the replacement for the old Redhat linux.

Regardless of what he wants to run on it, RH9 is ancient, ill-supported, and for the most part junk at this point in time. Since you don't already have it, I strongly suggest avoiding it like the plague. If you like RH, do as suggested above and get your friend Fedora Core. Many databases have released several versions in the 5 or so years since RH9 came out, and he should probably be working with up to date software.

Peace,
JimBass

though this thread is old but it might be usefull for other people looking for the same info.


just check out iso.lq at

http://iso.linuxquestions.org/version.php?version=10

also if you can just get the filename of the any CD of redhat (shrike-i386-disc1.iso in this case ).. then you can look for all available mirrors in google by looking for

intitle:index.of shrike-i386-disc1.iso

regards
