    Hi,

    Can you tell us what operating system are you using?

    You may want to consider upgrading to Fedora Core 5, RH9 is ancient and the upgrade is rather painless.
    Why are you not using Fedora Core?

    As Lovechild said, you are running a very old linux version. Since you are trying to install newer applications, you are getting some dependencies conflict.
    Try downloading Fedora from one of the mirrors. Alternatively, if you can't download it, someone from the forum might be able to burn and mail it for you.

    As I understand it, Fedora supports direct upgrading from RH9 so you should just be able to boot the cd and it should detect your RH9 install and offer to upgrade it.

    I would be happy to burn you a copy and mail it to you if you are unable to download it, just PM me your address.
