Could loopmount the iso, extract the VMwareTools RPM, then provide it to or ship it to your VM over anything networked? BTW, being curious, what is it exactly you do that requires RHL9?

Try following these instructions to install via RPM:

As for using Red Hat 9, they said project is due so I'd imagine its for college and sometimes they're behind in the times with updates and going with the last free version of Red Hat 9 for projects, etc.
