Shalom,

Use RH 3 update 7 or 8 because it has the latest hardware support.

You may have issues with the video card, this is quite common on compaq machines. If so, you may be forced touse RH 4 update 4.

Re: How to install Linux RHEL on HP Compaq dx7200

it seems that your problem related to SATA, not ATA disk.

are you sure for 100% that you have IDE disk? Does BIOS see this disk?
