Gnome (or KDE) upgrades are not easy to do on older distros (and redhat 9 is now an older distro with no official redhat support). There are many dependancies to install ... hundreds of files.

I have Gnome 2.8 running on Gentoo Linux and on Ubuntu Linux currently.

I didn't see any Gnome 2.8 rpms for redhat 9, but there are some for Fedora Core 2 here:

You can tell what version of gnome you are running with the command:

rpm -qa | grep gnome-desktop
