Get rid of Red Hat 9 and install a newer distribution. It's out of date and no longer supported. You'd probably have to update a lot of packages to get Skype to run on it.

Out of interest, what made you install Red Hat 9 (rather than a newer distribution) in the first place?

I'd definitely choose Fedora over Red Hat 9. If you still have problems, post new threads telling us exactly what those problems are.
