you need to have web service running mostly is apache, you also need the perl application, PostgreSQL, Pg.pm and sendmail

apache, perl postgreSQL and sendmail normally come with RH9.0 or most other linux distro, since you using RH9.0 you can check by uing rpm -q "applicaiton name" it will show you some info.

like for apache, try rpm -q httpd you will got some like below

[root@testlinux root]# rpm -q httpd
httpd-2.0.40-8

so you know which you missing. for the Pg.pm I'm not sure whether it come with RH 9 or not but you can find it in here http://www.cpan.org/modules/index.html and the installation info.

2) As per techguide
I think what's the manual mean RH6.1 useing  nobody for apache/http but RH9.0 should come witht he user httpd (if you install the apache/http during your installation), so I don't think you have to create any user for http as per the manual said . but do need to check the /etc/apache(or httpd)/httpd.conf to see the User  directives is using httpd ( normal yes)

createuser httpd
createuser mail
when i do this i get user not able to add can some one plss help me out on
this issue and tell me how to configure further steps need ur valuable help

this mean you have to login to your SQL server (PostgreSQL) to create the user 'httpd' and 'mail' read here for detail of login and create users http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.3/interactive/user-manag.html

Hope this can help :)
