    That is Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS4, right?Have you already tried to install it and you faced an issue?
    Red Hat should automatically detect your sata HDD and proceed with the installation. There is also Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 which supports newer hardware as well as CentOS 5 (recompile of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 with a different brand name)

    You must give as more info: your hardware specifications and what you intend to use your computer for(so we may suggest you a distro to fit your needs better if it is the first time you use Linux).

    Try passing all-generic-ide parameter to installer.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
