You can't load any modules because you probably didn't update the modules to work with 2.6. Most modules that were compiled to load on 2.4 will not load on 2.6.

My advice is unless you are really attached to Red Hat 9 for some good reason I would get a new distro. Red Hat 9 is no longer supported, so ya. Either switch over to a more current version of Fedora or get a different distro all togeather.

If you really want to fix this distro you are going to have to update all the modules to run 2.6, which is going to be hard since Red Hat was enver supported during the 2.6 kernel.
