This is a very vague question, but let me try to give you
every possible answer:
If you are doing a CD, hard drive, or FTP install, you
start off the same way for each:
Using rawrite.exe under DOS, create the boot & root disks
with the boot.img and the supp.img images.  rawrite.exe is
available in the /RedHat/dosutils directory on the CD, or
on ftp.redhat.com and any of its mirror sites.

After booting off the boot floppies, the install process is
graphical and pretty easy to follow from there.  

As far as make config, by default I believe the kernel source
is not installed.  You would simply use rpm -i (sourcename.rpm)
Then you will find the source in /usr/src/linux as in Slack.
In that directory is plenty of compiling info, but basically
it will be identical to Slack (make config, make dep, make clean
make zImage, etc.)

You ought to be able to set up X graphically from the install
under RedHat, but if you have already installed, Xconfigurator
does a nice job of setting up X.  Under slack you can use the
program xf86config (note the capitalization) for a command-line
based X setup, but I think they too have some graphical tool.

Under Slackware, netconfig will work for networking.  In RedHat
there is an X-based network tool called 'netcfg' -- you can't go
wrong with it.  Once again though, RedHat prompts you for most
of this stuff during the install.

Good luck
