try a kernel only installations.
its basically a update installation of red Hat 9 but
just select only the kernel in the software selection
i.e dont select any other packages.
I tried this once on a Red Hat 6.2 installation, it
worked.Also use it as a last resort kind of solution.
Its ugly, but if u have no other hope, ugly is
Also this way u can re-install the boot loader.Also
try LILO its much more newbish friendly.

and RH 9 linux in another partition. I'm not getting
the bootloader option while booting. i got a
solution from lug, but it didn't work.i would have
also done some mistake.pls bear with me.
The solution from lug is as follows (as i did)
i booted with RH 9 Cd 1 in linux and i typed, 'linux
rescue' in boot prompt and pressed enter.
it asked for the keyboard type (us) and setup
networking (no). And the chroot screen came and it
prompted that the 'system has mounted under the
/mnt/sysimage'. i pressed 'ok'. Then it went into a
shell where i gave 'chroot /mnt/sysimage'. and again
in the prompt i gave, 'grub-install /dev/hda' but it
prompted with an error "invalid option --i" . To came
out of the shell i gave "exit exit" . the system
rebooted. But no bootloader ooption camewith luv,
have a nice day
