Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If these RPMs aren't compiled for redhat9 then it won't work, but if you really want to install it you need to solve the dependency/conflict problems manually(like removing all the offending packages and install from scratch, RPMs are evil...). Also because redhat9 uses a heavily customised version of KDE so even if you manage to get it installed, things might break.
I upgraded KDE 3.1.0 to KDE 3.1.4, on Mandrake 9.1, using Mandrake 9.1 specific RPMS (from texstar) from the console, with urpmi.
Everything was fine. I just downloaded the kdebase=3.1.4, and it listed the other KDE packages that had to be installed. I said yes, install them. It finished, I logged out, and when I logged in again I had KDE 3.1.4. Everything ran great.
Maybe you could find some Red Hat 9 specific RPMs?
