I don't know the answer to your question. Just a warning with regards to RH9:

It's no longer supported by RH and for that reason you will not be able to find security updates for recently detected security problems.
So if you don't have a good reason to stick to it, I think it's wise to update to a more recent distro.

PS I still have a RH8 box running, but it's not connected to the internet.

U have tried to get USB internet capabilities with an Arescom Router, but it seems this is nearly impossible in Linux. If your router has a USB and Ethernet port on the back, use the Ethernet. It will work much simpler. I don't think you will have any luck at all trying to get internet through USB on Linux.

I would also recommend upgrading from RH9 unless you have a good reason not to. Fedora Core is very similar to the old RH. You might also want to look into Gentoo, Ubuntu, Debian, or Slackware.
