    Newer versions of Redhat-based distributions will have SATA support. What version do you have? Fedora Core 1,2,3, or 4 would detect the drive just fine, as well as CentOS 4.

    You could try installing it to an IDE disk then compile in the sata drivers. You're most likely looking at a full kernel recompile, with a few probably side effects. Is there a reason why you are stuck on 7.2/8? Is using one of the new Enterprise editions or Fedora out of the question?

    If you're doing this for a company, and they're insisting on using RH7.2 or 8, then you could encourage them to go get some SCSI disks, that'll work. The alternative is to go back to old-fashioned IDE.

    The standard method with RedHat and variants if it doesn't detect the disks is to use 'linux expert' as the boot command from the CD - but that's unlikely to work with this old RedHat version.

    The only other alternative I can suggest is getting an IDE card and a small IDE disk for the root filesystem, installing onto it, then adding sata drivers using the newer disks (for home directories, database space, etc.) later.
