You either need to compile a new kernel,
either upgrade from distribution (up2date kernel)
either upgrade distro to FC.

AS compiling kernel by yourself is a long story, try from

I ran to same problem with Dell Server once. I called Dell told me that open source RH or FC is not supported by SATA drive. It would have to be RH ES 3.0 or later. Here is how I solved it. Open your cpu or server and disconnect SATA connection and connect drive(s) directly to motherboard and it will let you install whatever you want to install on it.
