I can't vouch for wether or not GATOS will work with Red Hat
Linux 9 or not as I have not tried out the latest GATOS code with
XFree86 4.3.0.  You might want to post that question on the 
xfree86 xfree86 org mailing list, or the GATOS mailing list.

It will require using the GATOS kernel modules of course, and of 
course we don't support systems using kernel modules we do not 
supply, yada yada yada.  ;o)
