The error message tells that Emacs is unable to locate the
external w3m program.  If you have already installed it and it
is /home/ramprasad/bin/w3m, modify the `exec-path' variable as

(add-to-list 'exec-path "/home/ramprasad/bin")

If not, install the external w3m program[1].  Though I don't
know Red Hat Enterprise, the rpm package might be available.
