RH9 uses the 2.4 series of kernels. If you want to install on a sata drive, you are going to need a linux distro which has a 2.6 series of kernel.
For that I suggest you try either CentOS or Fedora Core, if you want a linux distribution based on RH. Basicially any of the newer distros should work for you, see distrowatch and take the linux distro chooser test to decide which one would be suitable for you.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

firstly, I would suggest you take the linux chooser test that I linked to and read up on distrowatch about each distribution. Also google around about your hardware and any problems it may have with linux.
However, here are my recommendations in no particular order:
SuSE Linux 9.3/10.0
CentOS (I think 3 or 4 is the latest)
Fedora Core 4
Fedora and CentOS are directly based on RH, SuSE and Mandriva are based to a certain degree on RH, in that they use the RPM packages.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

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