Looking for 64 bit version of Redhat

I downloaded and installed RH 9 (shrike) with no problems. I am trying to get Oracle 9i running on this OS but 9i requires a 64 bit OS. Which version of RH should I use to get Oracle 9i running?

You'll need a 64-bit machine/CPU to be able to install a purely 64-bit version of Linux. AMD64, Opteron, Itanium, UltraSparc, PowerPC, something like that. A regular AMD or Intel cpu like Pentium4 or Athlon are 32-bit CPUs. What hardware do you have?

Oh and I'm pretty sure there are versions of Oracle 9i for Intel i386 32-bit available.
