Glad to help if I can. What distro are you trying to install? How? (CD, http, ftp, etc). What errors makes you believe the hard drive is not recognzed?

Which RedHat?
If it's one of the older ones (like RH7.x, RH8 or RH9), I suggest that you switch to another distro (unless you have very good reasons to stick with it).
If it's RH Enterprise Linux, search LQ or google for redhat sata; one link on LQ is http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ta-hdd-592448/
