It should be possible to install it under HVM.

You don't need a special kernel to install a guest under HVM, you just boot 
off the standard install media...  So, if you get an iso image of the RH9 
install CD then you should be able to install it.

An easy way to do this on CentOS / RHEL 5 is to use virt-manager: use 
the "new" option to create a new virtual machine; when it asks tell it you 
want "fully virtualized".  Then it'll ask where your install CD ISO is.  
Point it at this, answer a few more questions, and then you should be good to 

Hope that helps,
