No hard drives found - Hitachi SATA drive

Using RHEL4 ES Update 4.

I am getting the following warning:

No hard drives have been found.
You probably need to manually
choose device drivers for the
installation to succeed. Would
you like to select drivers now?

Yes / No

Choosing Yes brings up a massive list, however nothing specific to Hitachi. Is there a substitute driver that can be used?

The hardware is a laptop HP pavilion dv1000

The drive is a Hitachi Travelstar HTS541080G9SA00

If anyone knows where I can get drivers for this hard drive ... would be appreciated.

Why do you search drivers for hard drive? You should search drivers for storage controller
