You should not use Red Hat Linux 9. Red Hat does not maintain Red Hat Linux anymore. Please choose to install any recent, supported, maintained distribution instead and please don't postpone doing that.


"you selected FVM2 as your window manager but your installation does not appear to be functional. The executable /usr/x11R6/bin/fmv2 was not found on your system"
Select another Window Manager?

I'd rather see you install a recent O.S. than try fixing the WM problem.
