Sorry, don't have hint for the special problem, but you could try to 
upgrade your RedHat dist like this:

1. Install 8.0
2. Register to RHN with rhn_register (it does not cost anything)
2. Mount 9.0 in your CD drive
3. Install redhat-release-9.xxx.noarch.rpm from your CD package 
directory: rpm -iUhv redhat-release-9.xxx.noarch.rpm
4. Perform up2date -f -k /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS (see man up2date, what 
this means)

For an official info look here:

But I have modified point 4., then you don't have to download all stuff.
