Redhat linux 4.0 Enterprise edition Installation problem - prompting for drivers


Hi friends,
I am trying to install Redhat linux 4.0 Enterprise edition
in my system. The system starts booting from CD-ROM
and starts installation. It prompts for language selection
(By default English) and then key board type ( By default US type).
After this it is prompting to select the drivers with the following
options.
" SELECT DRIVERS", "CHOOSE DRIVERS FROM LOCATION", "BACK".
Why it is prompting for drivers?. what type of drivers it is looking
for? what is the solution?
My system mother board type is Intel 80865.

with thanks

If you really need RHEL, why not use the most current version (5.4?)

Regardless, can you get past this step? (Sometimes, installers have it "just in case")

Is your hard drive SATA? (A little voice is telling me that RHEL 4 does not support SATA)

To add to what pixellany said, if you're using RedHat Enterprise, have you called RedHat support?? You've got access to it, with your RedHat subscription.
