The package manager in Redhat 9 was very buggy. If you can get your hands on a release of Fedora, I believe it's better than trying to use a product thats no longer supported. Anyway to install rpms, do

#rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm

That command will show you whether the program installed or if there any problem, it'll print them out.
