redhat 9.0 is not booting

I am using RedHat 9 , but it cannot boot .

Can anyone teach me how to solve it ?

It has not any respond at this moment each time. the message is as below:

EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.

To mount /proc at boot you need an /etcfstab line like:
/proc /proc proc defaults
In the meantime, mount /proc /proc -t proc

the clue to your problem lies here:
Segmentation fault

Seems like the boot time programs you're trying to run are not working correctly, due to segfaults. Perhaps you have a corrupted HDD, or filesystem. Is this a fresh install, or a system that has been around for a while?

Also, please consider replacing Redhat 9 with a distro that is current and actively supported. It's obsolete, and the Fedora project is way better
