Making a boot disk

Does anyone know how to make a boot disk which I can put drivers on and then the boot disk will install the Redhat operating system using the RedHat CD's? Is this also possible to do?

The reason I ask is cause I have tried to install RedHat on a Dell Box but the installation does not recognize the SCSI Hard Drive, so the install fails. Luckily for me the Box comes with a dell boot disk that allows me to load SCSI drivers, partition the hard drive then uses the RedHat CD's to install. When it installs linux, it installs most of the services without giving me a choice which is not very good for me. Is there any other way around this problem. Any kind of help would be appreciated.
