    No; [url]http://www.redhat.com/software/linux/technical/[/url]

    However, running either of the two Desktop Managers (Gnome or KDE) will
    seem sluggish. Try a different lighter weight Desktop like Fluxbox or
    IceWm instead.

    You won't be happy, RH 9 has a pretty big RAM footprint.

    May I suggest 7.3 with the latest OS and especially kernel updates? I've
    been building kernels lately for 8.0 and 9.0 with the ACPI patches
    compiled in, I'd be happy to send you an SRPM.
