    Yes. RedHat 9 is an old distro - it dates from about 98/99, and hence has poor support for SATA hard disks.

    Try a newer distro, RHEL4 is the latest supported version from red hat in that sequence. You can also try CentOS which is community-suppored, based on the same code base, and is binary compatible with RHEL4.
