Probly you will have to make a dd from your OEM provided driver disk and then on the first boot prompt you need to type linux dd, system will then ask you to insert the driver disk,,insert the dd and proceed with the normal installation...

Drivers for SATA..!!

If you find any drivers for your solution then give me a call..!!!
You will never find any drivers for Enterprise version to support SATA and even worse to support SATA II..!!
See my post and will understand what had happened to me on a production line.!

Ask the community to help you , and if they do then call me again..!!!!!

I wish you good luck but I cannot wait...I have already changed to Windows server systems to do the job.

Though I am still staying on this forum just to see when they will release a driver for Enterprise version or when they will read the forums to wake up from their sleep...!!
Very disappointed in ReD Hat enterprise 5.!

Do not forget..LINUX and especially RED HAT is taking you "back to the Past" of the technology..!!
I do not know why they release RED HAT 5 and do not support SATA II?????
