Yes, it sounds like it's looking for SATA drivers.
I think RHEL 4 had limited SATA support, but it was problematic at best for most users from what I've read. You'd have better luck with a later version of RHEL (or CentOS), or if you were to install a PATA drive. You could also check your BIOS settings to see if there an option there to allow you to use the SATA drive in a PATA mode.
Maybe someone else can provide a better solution for you.oz
