You can mount a RH boot disk (its a fat filesystem), and copy off the
initrd and kernel for it.  You should then modify your bootloader on the
hd to also point to the initrd and kernel (you shouldn't specify a root
partition).  You should also look at the syslinux.cfg on the boot floppy
and add the appropriate kernel command line options in the bootloader on
your harddrive.
