fedora3 is ancient and unsupported and no doubt doesn't have support for your hardware. Download Fedora 8 and try that.

How do people even get a hold of these legacy OSs?

Installing Fedora 3 (vs. Fedora 8 [or equivalent]) is comparable to installing Windows 95 instead of Windows XP. Why you would install Windows in the first place is beyond me, but that's just a timeline comparison.

Indeed.....The most common seems to be RedHat 9.

I think there are many old books around that came with CDs. I had a large pile of Linux CDs which I thought I might sell at a yard sale. Sanity prevailed and I destroyed them.

If you have broadband internet access, you can download and open unetbootin like you would any other windows install wizard and then use it to do a net-installation of the most recent fedora release:

Yes, the more recent versions of Fedora will support SATA.
