boot to the CD again and there should be an option to boot from the HD. it will most likely be a command like this at the lilo boot loader

lilo: linux /dev/hda ... something like that...

Hmm... what you could do would be to boot from a Knoppix CD, chroot into your redhat install and install LILO or grub....

but that might be overtly complicated...
