Are you thinking about a floppy or a cd? In both cases (floppy image is in one of the directories of the cd image) look there:
Go to download page and find a good mirror near you. Or you can order a boxed set, of course.

Well, you don't actually have to uninstall Redhat as it is not a Program. If you want to install Mandy instead of RH just plop in the Mandy disc at boot up, and when it asks if you want to format the disc, say Yep.
