Smile RH9 Fails to install under MS-DOS

I am trying to install RH9 on systems over a network. The server is Windows 2000. I have RH 7.2, 7.3, 8, and 9. I am able to install only RH8 at this point this way. It is important that I boot with a MS-DOS bootdisk, as I also install othere OS's from time to time. I am looking to basically create a disk that will allow me to install anything. (Ghost is not an option)

This is what I have done:

I have created an MS-DOS 7.1 (Win98 DOS) bootdisk. This disk starts up CD-ROM support, and loads my network card driver, and starts up the NetBEUI or TCP/IP protocol.

After everything is done loading, I am able to map to a share on the network, and run autoboot.bat from any of the 4 RedHat directories I have on the server.

When I do this with RedHat 8, I am successful in getting the installation to launch. When I try RedHat 9 or 7.3, the system locks up after starting some services before the installer takes over.

The last few lines I get before the system locks up are:
PCI: Found IRQ 9 with 00:1d.2
PCI: Sharing IRQ 9 with 00:1f.1
PCI: Sharing IRQ 9 with 02:02.0
usb-uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0xec00, IRQ 9
usb-uhci.c: Detected 2 ports
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 4

Both RH9 and 7.3 seem to lock up at the same point, but RH8 flys on by and works great.

What could be the problem here?
