do not demand urgent attention, this is not urgent for us, it's just a rude thread with a very unhelpful title.

That cdrom seems old enough. I'd try a newer driver. The chance is that the ehci driver is buggy in that release or that you own a motherboard with a buggy ehci controller. Another solution (provided you don't need the ehci usb controller which is for usb 2.0) is that you disable either the usb on your BIOS or/and the ehci driver at boot time (check redhat docs to see how to disable stuff at boot time, I am not a redhat user).

Urgent: Red Hat 9 is seven years old. It is no longer supported. Update your distro.

Not urgent here! 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' would be one link you should look at to help us to help you in the future.

'Urgent' for YOU only, not for anybody else.

What should be really 'urgent', it's ditch that *old* distro and get a current release

@ RockDoctor:
Without knowing why arbabshahab wants to install RH9, your post #4 should be phrased differently.

We're still running RH6.2 system with dedicated hardware and drivers and we're not planning to invest time (and therefore money) in trying to get the dedicated HW working on a newer version of RH.

You're right, of course. My apologies.
