    Red Hat Linux 9 - Unable to find my hard disk


    When I try to install red hat 9, i get a message saying it cannot find my hard disk. Probably because I have a SATA hard drive.

    My IDE Controller is Intel 8280 1EB Ultra ATA Storage controller. I cannot find the driver for it in the list of drivers that the installation presents when you choose to install the drivers after that message pop up.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is there any reason you want to use Red Hat 9? It is very old and is unsupported. I recommend trying out the latest Fedora or CentOS. Fedora is the community Red Hat project and CentOS is a clone of Red Hat Enterprise.

    Oh, I didn't know that it was outdated. I thought that was the latest red hat there was for reasons I don't remember.

    Just wanted red hat for its "enterprisy" "developer-ish" minimalist feel.

    Thanks

    CentOS might be your best bet then. It should give you good experience for the modern Red Hat Enterprise releases.
