And your problem would be? They SAY they don't support linux, but that does not mean it won't run! Try installing it, and if you do encounter a problem while trying an install, then post it here and we will be eager to help you.

You might be better off going with something like Centos5 (RedHat el5 with logos removed) on a server. Fedora's support life is only one year now. Centos5 will have support for at least another 4 years.

If you are trying to run RedHat 9 on relatively recent hardware you are virtually guaranteed to have problems. RH9 predates most current hardware. In other words, it is a dinosaur.

Good Luck
