I strongly recommend switching to a newer Linux distribution, such as Fedora Core.

Have you also checked that your motherboard supports SATA? Maybe you'll need to enable it in your BIOS.

Your problem might vanish if you try a decently recent version of linux. RedHat 9 is outdated. If you want to stick to RedHat, use Fedora Core 4 or 5: http://fedora.redhat.com

The kernel on the Redhat9 doesn't support SATA.
If you like to use this distribution you must to use Fedora.
However there are many distro.
If you want a good simple distro is Suse.
In the liveDVD of Suse is possible using it without installing nothing on your hard disk and when do you want can use the same dvd for installing it.

Bye
