Do you have a link to the Redhat method? Perhaps that would give me

A Google search turned this up:

Maybe the original poster is looking for some sort of DOS utility that
doesn't exist in Ubuntu (or RedHat, for that matter). Debian or slackware
may have such a utility.

I believe the RedHat instructions have some limitations -- I may be wrong
but I think something I read said fat32 is not supported by the installer.
Also, if you notice, the instructions assume you're running linux (not that
well-known proprietary OS from Washington USA) and you must have grub

IMHO it's a LOT easier to burn and boot from a CD... but if that's not
possible on your system (if it doesn't HAVE a CD, for instance) there may be
some trick you can develop!
