Post Linux Installation Problem


Hi Guys,
This is Sampath Kumar, and 'm new to LQ
And i had a problem in installing the redhat9,can any one help me out,
Problem is during the installation process,as and when i reach the partitioning,the system automatically restarts saying something resembling "could not detect the harddisk",and i tried 3packs of redhat9 and all having the same problem,so there might not be nay problem in the CD's i think,and i have a SATA segate 80Gb harddisk
And when checking from CMOS i'm able to see the harddisk

Redhat 9 is an old release and I'm not sure that it has SATA support - can you try a more recent distribution? The Fedora releases follow on from Redhat 9 and might give you better results.

I'm pretty sure that RH9 does NOT have SATA support.

Off topic, but why are there so many copies of RH9 around???
