1st you'll need the newest version of up2date I don't know the download url but you'll figure that out.
2nd check to get known how to setup up2date to use yum.

syedjanu: up2date is and always has been a pain.

If you want yum functionality, then why not visit Fedora Legacy and install yum for RHL9:

But keep in mind that Fedora Legacy support for RHL9 will end in December 2006:

Isnít it time to move on to a supported distro?

Want to use a stable version of RedHat, but donít want to pay subscription fees? Then use CentOS:
