help me with SATA HDD and Linux 9.0

Dear friends,
My motherboard is ASUS P5PE- VM (Intel ICH5 Chipset) and HDD is Samsung SATA 120 GB. When I try to install Red Hat Linux 9.0....the installer can't find any HDD.
What should I do? Is there any version of linux that is already compatible with SATA.

plz plz ans.

Redhat 9 is so old, it belongs in a museum.

SATA did not exist when RH9 was released, so you are on a hiding to nothing trying to install it on a SATA hard drive. It simply will not work.

I suggest that you get a recent distro. The latest in the Redhat line is Fedora Core 6, alternatively try Ubuntu Edgy or any other current distro.

anis_huq, could you tell us why you chose to post in this forum as opposed to a more suitable onje? was it just because it's the first in the list? was the discription misleading in your opinion?

//moved, but an answer to the question asked by Chris would be appreciated and will help us improve LQ.
