I'm a windows guy, but from googling, I think I can help you...atleast give you a reference to help.


Looks like you need to set the option "acpi=off"

Here's where I pulled it from, the context will probably help you catch the gist of it. Reference

why use RH9? it's old, out dated, and Red Hat doesn't even support it anymore. i'd say go for fedora.
