    Red Hat 9 does not support IPv6, at all. It's not just the kernel, but most userspace programs in Red Hat 9 are compiled without IPv6 support as well.

    IPv6 is well supported from Fedora Core 2 and forwards (since they use a 2.6 kernel). I recommend that you upgrade from RH9 to FC2, FC3 or FC4 instead if you wish to use IPv6.
