I don't think RedHat used to distribute ISOs back then. Shouldn't
be too hard to make your own though, I see mirrors.kernel.org has all the
required files. Just get the entire RedHat directory from the url below,
burn it to a CD and boot from floppy (or if you're adventurous make your
own bootable ISO). You could install via nfs mount too if you wanted...
don't remember when they added an FTP option.
