"redhat 9" is a very old version and I would not recommend using it.  I do have installed on an old machine so I do know what it is.

The current version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux is 6 and so is the current version of CentOS (Open Source) which is built from the Redhat code.  They are current modern versions of Linux and have the same general benefits that other versions do.  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is a paid version with paid support intended to be used in Enterprises which means medium to large businesses that want professional support.

Dont use it, you'll probably get 0wned!

If you want to stay on the Redhat route use Centos or RHEL 6, or pick another more up to date distro.
