Use RPMFind to, well, find RPMs.

If you're running redhat 9 with kernel 2.4.20-8, just as I am, and you're looking for XFree86 rpm files, i think you have more serious problems

You have the redhat 9 CDs? In this case, go system settings->add or remove programs You might find you did not install the Kernel source, then just tick it and update. The system is to creat a folder linux-2.4.20-8 or some similar name and also a redhat system link to it. This is the easiest approch.

Otherwise, I don't know whether downloading the rpm and do a rpm -ihv XXX.src.rpm would creat a system link for you. If not, you would creat a system link yourself. I remember first creat a dir, by "mkdir redhat" in /usr/src and then ln -s redhat <your source folder>.
