Red Hat Network and Red Hat 9

I just installed an old copy of Red Hat 9 and I was wondering if it is still possible to install packages via the Red Hat Network website (rhn.redhat.com). And if so, it requires registering my system so how do I do that with Red Hat 9?

Thanks,
Jerry

Yes it's still possible. Here are the different ways you can register taken from the FAQ
https://rhn.redhat.com/help/faq/

* On the GNOME desktop, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => Programs => System => Red Hat Network.
* On the KDE desktop, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => System => Red Hat Network
* At a shell prompt, type the command "rhn_register".

If it were me though I would go with CentOS. It's a free clone of Red Hat Enterprise.

Hi,

I dont belive RHN is available for FREE. I am not sure if they support Redhat 9 now as  it has been marked as un maintained, I would suggest
you install CentOS as it is a clone of Redhat Enterprise Linux.
