Unhappy SATA II Driver for K8NF4G-SATA 2

I am trying to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 on an ASROCK K8NF4G-SATA 2 board which has an nVidia Nforce 410 MCP Chipset. I have a 250GB Maxtor disk attached to the primary SATA 2 interface and it is detected by the BIOS. During installation Linux informs me that I need to load a driver for the hard disk. If I choose to sata_nv driver shown in the list I get an error 2 from cpio and the installation fails because it can't find any disks. If I download the lateset driver from Nvidia website and press F2 during driver installtion it reads the floppy disk and adds the driver to the list but when I try and add it - it doesn't get added.

I have gone round in circles and read more forums and notes than I care to mention. Can anyone ehere help me please?
