RedHat 9 is these days an old linux distribution and because of that it likely doesn't contain sata drivers to find your harddrives. Use a newer distribution like Fedora ("RedHat 10/11").

It's worth mentioning that Fedora is free.

I know with Red Hat Enterprise there is a point in the installation where it prompts you for any additional drivers you might have on a floppy. I have to do that to install RedHat on my Dell 670 with SCSI. The SCSI drivers are available for redhat on the Dell website - it's possible that Samsung has Linux drivers available.

Another alternative would be to try using Gentoo, which as a Linux distribution I prefer anyway.
