My Red Hat box is not booted right now but I think there is a link in the menu somewhere if your running kde or gnome. Otherwise, do
ls /sbin/*disk*
ls /usr/sbin/*disk*
and do a man on the commands that are in the output. One of them might be a program.

It might be mkbootdisk

heres a copy of the answer to the your question which was asked by someone else today...
its a good idea to search and see if the questions has been asked...
"Redhat had a utility called mkbootdisk. Probably run as root ....
su -

Edit: You will need to know the kernel version which you are running.
For example..

At the prompt, type: uname -r ( to find the kernel version)
/sbin/mkbootdisk --device /dev/fd0 2.4.18-24.8.0"
