All I can give you is a hint - it'll take some effort installing to a SATA drive.

Do some searching, you should be able to find a solution to this problem. It will be something like:
a) install a newer distro
b) get a kernel w/ sata support, put this on a bootdisk.
boot from it, and onto your cd installation.

That's all I know, I don't have a sata drive.

from what I have read about SATA drives they work fine with 2.6 kernel + are recognised as a scsi drive using the command lspci
try using the command uname -r to see which kernel version u r using

how about trying fedora core 2 u can have a look at this link
http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1542890,00.asp
u can also download from here if u wanted to try it out. Otherwise someone on the forum may be able to offer u a different distro that will be compatible with your hdd.
there is also a bit of a thread about the same sort of problem http://www.redhat.com/archives/redha.../msg00281.html
I`m sure someone will post with some more advice :-)
