there are also source rpm's but i don't know how to compile them to binary rpm's

well the smart thing to do would be to at least show us the filename of the rpms you are trying to installing, checking whether they really are for redhat 9.0, and pasting the error message/contents from the term. window.

It is always recommended that you install the rpms using the console rpm command..rpm -Uvh filename.rpm is the best bet.
