    RH Enterprise 3.0 is pretty old at this point, most hardware problems would be alleviated in a newer version of it if you can use it. Are you attached to 3.0?

    Welcome to the forums!

    I agree with coopstah13, and recommend using a newer version of RHEL (version 3 is almost 5 years old), or perhaps use CentOS. It's basically RHEL, but with the logos stripped out, and no paid support channel. It's available for free download and has SATA support.

    In case you want to install RHEL 3 only then type linux all-generic-ide at boot: prompt. It works in most of machines.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
