Im having problems installed red hat 9 on my pc. The problem is that I only have sata disks installed in the system and the installer can't see them. Does anyone have an idea on which driver might work or if there is a driver available for download anywhere?

Thanks.

Redhat 9 is obsolete and does not support sata drives.

Any reason why you are not trying a newer distro that would have native sata support, say Mandriva 2006 or Fedora Core 4?

If you are used to RedHat 9, why not Fedora Core 4? This is the new version of "RedHat" so to speak and you should feel fairly comfortable with it. Realize, that redhat 9 is an older distro and does not have all the native support built-in for your new hardware.

Can you burn some new disks? Fedora is available and free.

If you don't have the ability to burn new disks, why not buy some inexpensive disks from a vendor, say, like Linux Central?

There are several vendors out there that you can buy the disks from.
