RedHat 9 is very old and no longer supported by RedHat. So no security updates and modern hardware might not work. Searching the internet reveals that RH9 uses the 2.4.x kernel that does not seem to support SATA. Your post does not make clear if D: is also SATA.

Get yourself something more modern (check distrowatch) if you don't have a extremely good reason to use RH9.

Not familiar with Fedora. Sounds like your either installing on a harddisk that is fully in use by a previous operating system or a faulty HD. Did you (re)partition the HD?

that can be a common error with fedora , and fedora 10 in particular

have you tried fedora 11 ?
or CentOS 5.3 ?
