Install as you would on any other drive. You should not have any issues with the SATA drive.

those are older distributions, they may not come with sata driver support on the disc for your disk controller, you might need to provide a driver disk, your SATA dvd drive might not be detected either, since that is a relatively new technology

If I'm not mistaken...
There was no SATA support built into the 2.4.21 kernel that RHEL 3 was released with.
RHEL 4 on the other hand, came with the 2.6.9 kernel which did contain some support for SATA, but it did not work properly for lots of users and they had many issues trying to utilize their SATA drives.
For the best hardware support, I'd personally recommend going with a later Red Hat (or CentOS) release, or perhaps you can incorporate a newer kernel into one of the older versions of Red Hat.oz
