That's an old kernel. You might want to get a newer one and other security
fixes for Red Hat Linux 9 from http://www.fedoralegacy.org

Most likely you don't need a driver. You didn't say what problems
you've encountered. Probably you just don't have a cable between
your CD drive and your soundcard/chipset. Newer audio players
don't need a cable since they read Audio CDs digitally, e.g.
XMMS >= 1.2.8 comes with a plugin that can be configured
appropriately. For Red Hat Linux 9 you could try the xmms-cdread
but it gives varying results for users (hence "testing").
Better get a cable for the beginning.
