I think you can do the install with only the first CD. The second and third CDs are extras.

Get the 2nd ISO here

[EDIT] Actually, it was Mandrake I was thinking of where you only need the 1st CD. I don't recall if you need the other two CDs with Red Hat. Sorry about that...

Why not just make uninstall ? If they don't have an uninstall just delete the files. If you installed as root usually under /usr/bin /usr/share etc.., if not then they usually end up in /usr/local/bin /usr/local/share/ etc... Don't delete the directories I mentioned though.

Then delete the source directories. It ain't windows you know

Or take the opportunity to try out another distro, If you like RedHat you could try Fedora.
