RED HAT 9 Disk Drivers for HP pav. 2000


hi!

I am having a problem istalling Red Hat 9 on my newly purchased HP pavillion dv 2000.At the same time when I am loding the Red Hat into it using dual Boot It gives the message that "No disk drives available".

Kidly help me out in that n send the drivers available.

Suse 10.2 is already running as dual boot in the laptop.

RedHat 9 is fairly old so may not recognize your newer equipment.

After 9 RedHat diverged into commercial (still called RedHat) and non-commercial (called Fedora) distros. Fedora Core is up to 6 though that is the very latest. Any reason you need RH9 specifically rather than getting something more recent like FC5?

It is possible that your laptop has a SATA drive - SATA did not exist when RH9 was released. If you install Fedora Core 5, or perhaps another distro such as Ubuntu, you shouldn't have any problems.

Have you used RH9 before - it wasn't particularly good when it was released, and is rubbish compared to modern distros. All the software included has been superseded many times, so you will not have a good user experience.
