With the redhat 9 installation but somehow I messed it up and now

Did you make a boot/rescue floppy during your RedHat install?

I you made a boot/rescue floppy during install as irish_rover said, then you can use that to boot into Linux then reinstall Grub in the MBR.... If you didn't make a boot/rescue floppy, i think you can use your Red Hat CD for rescue mode...

here you can try to download the boot images here for your boot/rescue floppy if you didn't make one during install download the root disk not the boot disk:
