Well, what happens when you try to run it? Have you installed it properly without errors? We can't answer unless you give us more details, we can't read minds you know.

rh 9.0 and realplayer

Realplayer 8 will not work with Redhat 9.0. I've seen a few suggested workarounds but have not tried any.

here is link for proper version of real player for unix/linux

if linn does work then Here is how to get it:

1) Goto
2) Fill in the form and Choose Linux 2.x (libc6 i386).
Do *not* choose the RPM version.
3) click on "Download Community Supported Player"
4) Don't click on the normal download links. Go look at the very
bottom of the page. You will see
