It is because ST380815AS is a SATA II hard drive and Redhat 9 do not support SATA hard drives. You should try some newer version like Cent OS 5.x or something.

Hi,

Please can you send your system configuration it will be easy for me to help you in installation procedure.
Eg:HD capacity
Type of HD
Processor used
RAM capacity

Also I would suggest you go for RedHat Linux (RHEL) 5.1 version if you are a beginner.

With Regards,
Puja
