on redhat 9.0:
make sure your kernel source(they must match your running kernel) is installed
close your user-session
hit ctrl+alt+f2
init 3
cd /[folder with NVIDIA-driver]/
./NVIDIA[tab]
this should run it

anyway, when your fileutils(ls, du and other) are not installed, install them first.
i think redhat9 should have it installed by default

If you have mdk9.1 installed, you should already have binutils installed, if not, go to the package tools under configuration on your menu. While you're there, install the kernel sources for the kernel you are using.
Don't know what kernel, open console,
type uname -r

Have fun!

"If you have mdk9.1 installed, you should already have binutils installed"

not if you do a barebones install

otherwise , yes, it's a standard part
