RHEL3 does not support SATA disks...

If you want to stick with RHEL3 then no way you can use the SATA drive. only IDE drives will work.Also no seperate working drivers is available..

See this link
it says that only from RHEL4 update 1 that the SATA disk is supported, and that too involves some specifics to work properly

Bios reconizes new hd drive but xp pro does not


SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Im trying to install red hat linux enterprise 9 but it give error said no drives found.what can i do?


RH 9 is an old distribution. It simply may not be able to recognize SATA drives.
(Red Hat Linux 9, the final release, hit its official end-of-life on 2004-04-30 - Wikipedia).

If you are looking for a desktop solution, you would be better off looking at any one of these newer (and supported) distributions.

Ubuntu
http://www.ubuntu.com/

Fedora Project
http://fedoraproject.org/

OpenSUSE
http://www.opensuse.org/en/

I'm not endorsing any single one. Each has it's advantages. Plus there are others besides these.

Hard disk Recognition problem


U are actually facing the same problem as "jackwilkinso". As my previous post: Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.

How can i installed driver of sata hdd for linux red hat


if you are installing red hat 8 and higher there is no need to install extra driver because linux is the only operating system which will install everything including drivers, office suite,programming tools etc .... as far as my suggestion dnt install old versions of linux instead install new version ... there are many linux available
ex: fedora core 4,5,6 ,knoppix live cd linux ( which boots linux from cd no need install it) ,ubuntu,red hat,mandrake,suse ....
you can download it from net 4 free as linux is open source 4 all ...
be careful while installing linux especially during partitioning..... if u make a mistake you will lose all datas
