not sure that i can help but here goes. I have a P5P800 mobo with a Samsung SATA HD. Now, I don't have RAID set up, so I can't help you there. Are you trying to do raid? I do also have another computer with a PCI SATA controller in it that does just fine with mandriva. Never tried RH 9, but Fedora Core 4, Slackware, Mandriva, Debian, Gentoo, Xandros, Ubuntu, Kubuntu all work fine.

The problem is that even when I downloaded the kernel source for kernel 2.6.16 I discovered that via VT8251 support was not included in the kernel from www.kernel.org. I managed to solve the problem finally and the way I solved this problem is described on my webpage at http://www.geocities.com/rajahuroman/
What happens when you try installing Fedora Core 4? I had problems installing it on SATA drives before, at the prompt where you hit enter to install, it'd give me a kernel panic, but that problem can easily be solved... I just need to know if it's the same issue
