welcome to LQ!!

RedHat 9 is totally obsolete. The first thing to do is get something more modern. If you like RedHat, then try Fedora or CentOS (clone of RedHat Enterprise.)

Is the DVD a SATA interface? Older distros do not support SATA without some fiddling.

Your new question will get lost if you post it this way.

What do you mean by "graphically strong"? In any case, you can try many different flavors (distros) by simply booting up from live CD.
