Try using Fedora Core 4 instead of REdhat 9. Redhat 9 is old and outdated and no longer recieves support and updates. It was replaced by FedoraCore and Redhat Enterprise Linux.

The driver for your graphic card is probably not installed. You can either try to compile it, or try a new dsitribution (Fedora Core 4). If you are a total newbie, the latter is recommended.
