    you should be able to install on any sata drive

    what linux distros have you attempted to install? Please give name and version number you may be trying something too old to detect your hardware out of box

    it would also be helpful to know what kind of computer you are trying to install on

    Redhat 9 didn't have support for SATA drives, I know that RHEL3 does and most of the Fedora Cores do. You should probably switch to one of the more recent Fedora's, I would say at least fedora 6+.

    red hat 9 is unsupported for over 5 years, you need to try a newer distribution
    if you want to stick with red hat, fedora core 9 is the newest version and red hat enterprise 5 is the newest for that, but you have to pay for a subscription
    centos is equivalent to red hat enterprise without having to pay for the subscription

    any other modern distro will run on that
