Sata support for RHEL AS4

Can we integrate the sata drivers into the installation CD/DVD as we do in Windows.I am trying to install RHEL AS4 in a laptop with ICH8M SATA controller which is not recogonised by RHEL AS4.

I culdnt try other newer versions as my tailor made software doesnt even start with other versions

I tried giving ide-generic-all without success.There is no option to change sata to legacy mode in bios

Kindly suggest me how to overcome this problem

The process is known as remastering the CD/DVD to include the driver(s). I suspect you would have to add the driver(s) to the initrd used by the cd/dvd when it boots.

Try, search for 'remaster cd add drivers' or some such.
