No; http://www.redhat.com/software/linux/technical/

However, running either of the two Dindow Managers (Gnome or KDE) will
seem sluggish. Try a different lighter weight Desktop like Fluxbox or
IceWm instead.

You won't be happy, RH 9 has a pretty big RAM footprint.

May I suggest 7.3 with the latest OS and especially kernel updates? I've
been building kernels lately for 8.0 and 9.0 with the ACPI patches
compiled in, I'd be happy to send you an SRPM.
