What version are you using? At the Red Hat website, you can download iso
disk images of the version 7.3 which has a GUI, and allows you to set it up
without having to use a boot disk.
It also has a utility to allow the partitions to be set up automatically, or
manually (with the Druid package) and seems to have a lot of 'plug and play'
