how to make a boot disk without mkbootdisk command

I have installed Red Hat Linux Enterprise 4 WS for AMD 64 Opteron processor. There are three hard disks: on one is Windows, the second is the mirror of the first and on the third is Linux. To boot different systems I am changing in Setup the order of the disks to boot. Probably because of that after one month Windows refuse to start normally. I'll have to make a boot disk, but Red Hat Linux Enterprise 4 WS for AMD 64 does not include "mkbootdisk" command. Does anyone knows how to solve either of these probles?
