    What is ARCH? Did you try to find an opensouce driver that you can install manually on redhat 4? It is obvious that readhat 4 does not support that particular ARCH component. Look on the redhat site to find a listing of all supported proprietary components. B)

    Since Red Hat is a long term release, and it's almost time for RHEL6 to be released, isn't that version many years out of date? I'm wondering if there are repos available for updating.

    There was another question about this on the forum a couple of days ago, you do not need drivers you can change the sata mode in the bios to I believe EIDE or ATA mode then it will be detected without issues by all operating systems.

    Have you tried changing your sata mode in the bios? I have read in many cases that changing the mode pushes it to use native kernel drivers.
