Take a look at this:

Edit: You get to the install prompt by using a bootdisk from the cd. Use Windows software like WinRAR or Daemon-Tools to get the floppy image file and the rawrite program from the iso image file. Rawrite is used to make the floppy from the file.

Ahhh, you have the cd's themselves. Why do you want to install from hd then? To get the iso image files in Linux, use the 'dd' command:
dd if=/dev/hdc of=/rh1.iso bs=2048
Change the /dev/hdc if your cdrom is someplace else. You can change the 'rh1.iso' to be any path/filename you like.
