Redhat 9 is really, really old. So old that its usb-storage module may
not recognize newer USB devices. Do you see anything like "device
1234:5678 is not claimed by any active driver" in the output from dmesg
after this drive is plugged in?
Check dmesg. If you've got messages like the one that I reproduced
above, you need a kernel upgrade so you can get a usb-storage module
that recognizes more stuff. Actually, you should go whole hog and get
yourself a more recent distro, but first things first.
