I also have a 80GB SATA harddisk and it works perfectly but I have no tried with such old distros.

My motherboard bios allows me to use 2 different modes for controlling the disks: sata mode and ide compatible or something similar, if I use the ide mode I can not use the cd drivers (dvd reader and cdrw) but the hard drive is always working. Anyway you could try looking in your bios for something similar.
