Check the hardware connections on your motherboard. Also, since your board has SATA on it, I would expect that the kernel would not be able to support it if you are using RedHat 8. U could try out an updated distribution.

This system could well have SATA drives, which RH 8 doesn't support. You could adjust the BIOS settings to use the disk(s) in "legacy" (i.e., not SATA) mode. Or switch to a later Linux distribution that supports SATA, like Fedora Core 2, RHEL 3.0, Mandrake 10. There's also the possibility that you may be able to find a "driver disk" for your SATA controller that will work with RH 8.

Better to switch to Fedora Core 2 or any Linux distribution having kernel of 2.6.5 and above. This kernel supports SATA drives.
