I have a couple of suggestions. First, google for apt4rpm. It's a program that'll automatically handle downloadingall your dependencies for you. Second, I really suggest you get a newer distrobution, Redhat 9 is really really old and you won't be able to get up-to-date packages for everything while using it. If you really like Redhat, then Fedore Core is the logical upgrade. Fedora is the community (or free) version of Redhat these days

First you must really upgrade to fedora core 4. Redhat 9.0 is completely depracated at this point. If you don't want to download and burn the CDs then just do a network install - but better have a fast connection without interrruptions.
these instructions are for 32 bit processors.

one download mirror site.

Network install instructions
download linux boot.iso

burn this to CD
boot from CD
choose network install

enter host
enter location of distro directory

Then follow this installation.

Next log on to
update your yum.conf and repos.d

then run yum -y upgrade
then you can add multimedia support by follwoing instructions on the site.
