That's quite believable as they are all very old

And made well and truly before SATA Drives where available. Red Hat has been replaced by Fedora and is currently on release 17 the Red Hat Name is now reserved for Red Hat Enterprise which is a Paid For Service.

Cent OS is on Version 6. something and both are available for download if you so chose from places like Distro Watch.

http://distrowatch .com/
remember to remove the space from between distrowatch and the .com for a working link.

If you want to use these old Distros you need to make a SATA Driver Disc to load the required SATA Driver though here I'm not exactly sure which SATA Driver you would need and Gigabyte doesn't provide Linux Drivers for this M'Board I'm not really sure what you would need to allow you to make the older Distro's load.
