Doesnt matter...they both do the same thing. The distro you use will probably have a default so just use that.

redhat will default to grub, but you can choose lilo if you want.

if you can't boot off the cd's, get the boot.img from redhat, and use rawrite to make a boot floppy. there is a media check on this as well to check the md5 sums
