Question about Cavalry Storage Cavalry 500GB 3.5 7200RPM USB 2.0 External with One Touch Back-Up 500 GB Hard Drive
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

You may find that either the cable is not connected properly or is faulty, or the worse case the mother board has problems (driver, chips, breakages)
May even be a power supply problem, as the power supply has many output points and different voltages that the HDD power out may have blown. If it has then the rest of the system will appear to be ok.
So first off, check the cables connections on the motherboard, and look for any breaks in the cables, and if you have a power meter of some sort check the power connection, or plug in another power connector, the ones with the same end are generally the same power outputs. The ribbon cable for the HDD should have 2 sockets for HDDs and you must connect your HDD to the end one.

sounds like it's time for a disk recovery exercise. Check the repair directory on fixya for your zip code. That's about all you can do at this point. Hope you had it backed up.
