    RH9's pretty old. The newest version is Fedora Core 4, which should have SATA support.

    For what it's worth - SATA drives are seen as scsi - (sda1 etc) how you get RH9 install to look for that i'm not sure. There must be a script somewhere that mounts the drives?

    You can try http://www.budgetlinuxcds.com

    and get fedora core 4 final for a couple of bucks delivered to ypour door (or any other distro you want. Not an ad - just who i use.

    I use RH9 on and older system, but wouldn't think of putting it on my new 64bit x2 system. There is nothing wrong with it - it's just dated.

    Good luck

    finally - hw to brag about - but next year it will look pitifully quaint:
