Installing where HDDs not recognized

This is probably a dumb question, but I cannot find an answer I can understand (or make work!)

I have Red Hat 9.0. I like it. It ran well on my old computer.

I bought a new one with an Asus P4P800 Deluxe motherboard set up for SATA Raid 0 using the built in Intel ICH5R southbridge. Runs fine in Win XP

I cannot install Linux on the new machine because the installer cannot recognize the HDDs - it finds none present on the computer so there is nowhere to install to!

It appears that kernel 2.6 may solve this, but my distribution has kernel 2.4.

How can I make/obtain an installation disk that contains the 2.6 kernel which will allow me to install the rest of RH9.0. I don't have a working Linux box at present, so I hope to get something that I can make via Windows. If that is impossible, ANY way of making such an installation disk would be valuable (especially if simple).
