RedHat 9 nmap?


Dear All
I tried to install the nmap on my RedHat 9 , as the following :
#bzip2 –cd nmap-5.21.tar.bz2 | tar xvf –
#cd nmap-5.21
#./configure
#make
#make install
Actually , I wanted to make use of its graphical representation like the zenmap on the MS Windows client . On my CentOS server , the above procedure did get through and I reached to the nmap gui by issuing:
#zenmap
But on my RedHat 9 , it didn't get through . To have nmap gui on my RedHat 9 , can you please show me an alternative way to have it installed on my RedHat 9?
Thank you

Saying thing slike "it didn't get through" doesn't help anyone. What does that even mean? nmap is not zenmap, they are different packages. In general though, I'd suggest you install these packages from rpm where rpm's are available, but why on earth are you using redhat 9?? It's ancient. Seriously seriously our of date, and you're doing yourself no favours by sticking with it.

Thank you for your help . So I just rely upon my CentOS server .

seeing as RH9 is SO OLD and unsupported i would have been VERY surprised IF if built on rh9 .
if for some odd reason you need the very,very,very old rh9 then look for a version of nmap from 2004
