You will need to download the new version of Up2Date.

Go to the following website.

Look for Red Hat Linux 9 and download the two files under i386 to the /tmp directory.[list=1][*]up2date-[*]up2date-gnome-[/list=1]
Open a terminal and type:
su -
cd /tmp
rpm -Uvh up2date- up2date-gnome-
Once installed, you can delete the files.
