It's called Fedora.. use it instead or if you want to use something equivalent to Redhat AS or ES, use CentOS.

More Red Hat Linux 9 security updates are produced by the Fedora Legacy team, who extend legacy distributions beyond their end-of-life. If that doesn't suit your requirements, you may need to upgrade.

the fedora legacy project works well for the 10 machines we have left running rh9 at work.

i *believe* you can still purchase a subscription to the redhat network for older versions of redhat (7-9). the channels are still there, but i haven't tried registering any machines. if you're willing to pay some money to get updates and not have to upgrade yet, it is worth consideration.

No. While the old channels may be still there, the products have reached end-of-life, and so Red Hat Network (RHN) does not provide any updates beyond what had been published prior to end-of-life. For Red Hat Linux 9 and older, there is no value in subscribing to RHN, since you can get the same updates and Fedora Legacy's with a tool like Yum.
