firstly i am beginner

for mentor graphics eda tools i will install redhat 8. we will buy new PCs.
RH8.0 doesn't support new techs.
I have two alternative. 1. i will buy ide and similar old techs. So i couldn't get performance.

2. i will perform comunication between hardware and linux.

big problem is i am not good at linux. so i don't know how i can solve.

Why don't you simply get a newer distro, like Fedora Core 4, which supporta up to date hardware? Running old distros is a bad idea, security wise, anyhow, generally speaking. If you don't have broadband there are placed on the net that will sell you FC4 disks very cheaply (a few bucks, mostly to cover shipping).
