Hi and welcome to LQ.

It seems like the page requires Flash 9. You need to have alsa installed for Flash 9 to work properly with Linux. I don't think Redhat 9 used Alsa by default, so may have to install it yourself. A better option would be to get rid of Redhat 9 and install something newer like Fedora Core.
