Updating red hat 9

Hi, my red hat server keeps slowing down and all the services running stop, like named, mysqld and httpd. I've been trying to make an upgrade and update with yum, but the computer keeps telling me that there is nothing to be upgraded or updated. So, i can't tell what's wrong with it, and i can't update anything. Here's a copy of my yum.conf file for you to tell if i am looking in the right place to upgrade and update my system.

Help is needed ASAP, cause internet depends on this DNS inside our company. Thanks a lot.

Your problem with the updates could be because FreshRPMS doesn't support Redhat 9 anymore. Maybe its time to think about upgrading to CentOS 4.x or RHEL 4.x.
