Redhat 9 problems

I am wanting to build a small server using red hat linux 9.0. I want to install 2 programs mysql and webmin, but when I double click on the rpm it says determining packages, and when it is done with that the installer just disappears and I can not figure out how to them install them.

First of all, make sure mysql isn't already installed as it comes packaged with Redhat most of the time.

Secondly, try installing the rpm from a command line, its much more reliable than those silly GUI RPM installers.

Yeah, what trickykid said.

If you do a full install of RH9, Mysql will already be installed.
Just do a:
rpm -qa |grep mysql

to see if it's already there.

If not:
do a
rpm -ivh "package name"

to install it.

I think that's right anyway.

type "which mysqld"

Is it there? It's installed. Have you read the Webmin docs and tried connecting to it yet? You have apache running, right?
