No, Redhat 7.3 will not be able to make use of SATA disks unless you compile a new kernel with support for your SATA controller built in. A 2.6 series kernel means you will have to install module-init-tools too, plus you will need to install a ton of security updates if you want to use such an old distribution as RH7.3. I suggest looking into Fedora Core 2 if you like Redhat, it comes with support for at least the most common SATA controllers.

May I ask what application only runs on RH7.3?

Also, there's no need to excuse for your English, a lot of us here do not speak English natively.
