well first you have to make sure you have the redhat 9 specific rpm and after installing it with rpm -ivh package.rpm where you replace package with the name of the file obviously, you will then have to make a fake windows drive, where you can use something like winetools to automate the task for you, then after all that is done, you can then attempt to try and run things..
