There is a chance your hardware is made of some obscure matter so that
CentOS 4 kernel doesn't like it, but usually SATA and SATA2 are recognized
automatically in the installation. Some hardware are not recognized
automatically, so that you must use a floppy disk driver in CentOS
installation (correct me if I'm wrong), but I have only heard about that
(never happened to me). Some hardware are just not compatible with CentOS. I
guess most are compatible.

Mine is SATA2 on chipset from ICH7 family (motherboard Intel 945GNT), and
CentOS installation chose the driver/module ata_piix for it. Just worked out
of the box.
