    I ran into a similar problem the other day, trying to use gparted to partition a hard drive. It said it couldn't recognize the filesystem. However, when I ran a live cd, of Ubuntu 9.04, I was able to install it just fine.
    We may need to know a bit more about your machine. Could you post the specs of it?

    Apparently RHEL4 does not support that motherboard. You should try the latest version of RHEL5.

    The motherboard is apparently newer than RHEL4. Because updates are slow for Enterprise distributions, due to the need for stability, often drivers aren't supported when they come out in new hardware. If you want to recompile your kernel, you may be able to build the driver module to fit.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    With current sata motherboards you either need to put the disc controller into legacy pata mode in the bios for RHEL4, or update to RHEL/CentOS 5. Unfortunately, when you do that (change the bios settings to pata mode), you are limited to 4 drives total because it can only emulate 2 2-drive ata controllers. As for RHEL 5 and CentOS 5, they work great on new motherboards. I have an Intel S5000XVN dual xeon workstation/server motherboard and it has been flawless since I installed it over 18 months ago.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
