Short answer: you can't.

rh9 is very very old - we are up to redhat22 now, it is called fedora 13.
this site will help you choose an up to date distro to suit your needs.

If you like redhat, try fedora or CentOS.

The kernel version that RH9 used was written before sata drives were invented. Install a newer distribution.
