    I guess SATA is supported since Fedora Core 4. It wasn't supported earlier.

    SATA is supported fully in 2.6.x Kernels.RedHat 9 or RHEL 3 are Old distros carrying kernel 2.4.x .so get a newer distro with 2.6 Kernel like Ubuntu Breezy or Debian Sarge 2.6 kernel,though u can install RH9 or any 2.4 but the process is a little difficult.even there are patches of libata for 2.4 stable kernels.
