You don't need to load anything onto the hard disk before the install.
But you probably will need to boot from the floppy and you'll need to
use the pcmcia floppy image. That image is on the Red Hat CD. You
copy it onto a floppy with either rawrite.exe in DOS or dd in Unix.
And you may need an additional driver for your CD, but you copy that
onto a floppy, not the hard disk.
