By RedHat, do you mean RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 or RedHat Linux 4? Both are quite oudated, but RedHat4 is more than a decade old, I don't think it will boot at all these day.

If it is RHEL (RedHat Enterprise Linux), then get a Linux live-cd like Ubuntu or use the text-only rescue shell available when you boot RHEL4 cd1 and write "grub-install /dev/sda*" (where * is your '/' linux partition)


installation, linux
