he doesn't want to install it softly. he wants to make sure it's on that drive HARD. so hard it can't be formatted or deleted...EVER. – Nalandial Feb 26 '10 at 20:59
note the original question wording referred to "sata2 hard", instead of "second SATA hard drive". it could refer to a SATA-II (3.0Gbps) drive, or could refer to the second drive, or could refer to the drive on the third SATA port (SATA0,1,2...). it's hard to say without more information from the OP, and this is looking rather abandoned. – quack quixote Mar 27 '10 at 12:06

Ubuntu supports most SATA hard disks and SATA controllers. You should just be able to install it normally.

If your chipset isn't supported, you need to contact the manufacturer.
