Question easiest way to update RH9


I did a fresh install of RH9 on a old machine and it boots up. I would like to install the latest Apache and other Packages but its asking for all these up to date prereq rpms. Do i have to download each rpm package one by one or is there some kind of update I can do? I would like to stick with RH9 if possible.
