The RedHat installation disk should have a partition manager as part of ths installation process. I am assuming that the install disk is looking for free space. There isn't any because you partitioned it. Remove the partition, and try again. I could be completely wrong. I have never had an issue with an installer not being able to find the disk. Then again, I didn't try to create partitions ahead of time either.

It still says that it can't find the hard drive? What sort of a drive is it? SATA, IDE, etc?
