Tricking RedHat 9 into thinking it's RedHat Enterprise 3

I'm running RH9 and I have a peice of software that tells me it won't allow an install unless I'm running RedHat Enterprise 3. Is there anyway I can trick the installation program into thinking my RH9 is RH Enterprise 3? Where perhaps is it looking to see what OS I'm running?

Well it depends what test the application does.
maybe changing /etc/redhat-release will suffice, but it may appear, that cheating kerel version or lib/sys call is needed.
Are You familiar with strace (ltrace) tools, run the application through one of it.
