Have you installed anything yet?  RedHat comes with a boot selector called LILO.

What I recommend, is that you download loadlin, is free and easy to use, and does not require you to write to the boot sec. You can download it from redhat.com or suse.com. If you really want to use a boot loader, you can use lilo. Redhat will offer to set it up.
