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.

One thing I can see wrong is the version of WINE you are using. If it's as old as the name of the RPM indicates, it has no chance of working with Red Hat 9. That's because there is a new thread library in that Red Hat version that breaks older WINE distributions. (That's why 9 didn't ship with WINE.)
I tried to get to winehq just now, but I seem to be have reaching them. I can't get to codeweavers either, so I suspect it's a problem on their end. You should check out http://www.winehq.com and look for a more recent version of WINE that will work with Red Hat 9.
The problem is that Glibc 2.3.x has NPTL (new posix threads llibrary.) This new threading system broke a lot of software, including WINE. LD_ASSUME_KERNEL either makes the dynamic linker use an older threading model, or no threads at all. It works up to a point, but there are still issues remaining.
I'm currently using Crossover Office on my Red Hat 9 laptop, and it works. I don't know the details, but there was a patch to the winehq sources to deal with the NPTL problem a month or so before Code Weavers released the updated Crossover that fixed the WINE problem. Since that solved my problem, I haven't pursued getting the updated sources from winehq. The upshot of all this is, I believe, that:
a. There is no glibc update from Red Hat that fixes the problem
b. There IS a winehq release that works under Red Hat 9.
it works fine???
i have tried it before in rh9. after the installation, i try to prompt # wine in the terminal then, it yields: wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-yenonn/server-342-1c1c2: No such file or directory.
but then, when i work the same thing in rh8. this will not happen to me. pls, explain to me why?
