RH 9 is SO BLOODY OLD
it will not even install on new / current hardware
there is NO SUPPORT for hardware made after 2003
you will NOT be able to install anything on it
DO NOT USE IT !!!!!!!
if you need Red Hat
then install the CURRENT one
RHEL is also NOT free
you MUST buy a support license
if you are not going to pay for red hat then DO NOT USE it
there are two free builds of it
CentOS and ScientificLinux
install one of those .
