I am also new to Linux, but recently installed slackware on SATA 80GB hdd.
you need to take care of followig things
1. first time, dont boot with default kernel, when the first cd asks for kernel specify stata.i
2. after installation, in the configuration part where u are again asked to specify the kernel . at this time chose sata.i from the first cd.
if you miss any of these points, your hdd will not be detected.
i hope this will help

I was able to install Slackware 9.x on my SATA drive by specifying the sata.i kernel at the boot prompt, as suggested earlier. I imagine it's the same for 10.Registered Linux user #270181
