Red Hat 9

I have a Red Hat 9 server that I have to support for a wee while longer. I needed to install some packages and I didn’t have the original install CD’s nor access to Red Hat’s repositories.

After lot’s and lot’s of searching I found the ISO images at:
ftp://archive.download.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/9/en/iso/i386/

But, there’s too many users on Red Hat’s FTP server and I can’t get access … thankfully rpmfind.net have a mirror:
http://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/en/iso/i386/

So now I can download the ISO images, and mount them on the Linux box using the loop-back interface and install the packages I need.

I expect to have new hardware within a month or so, and I’ll probably be using BU Linux or Ubuntu 8.04.
