As I said in my post, the distribution is not Red Hat, but smalllinux,
a very tiny floppydistribution that runs on a 386 with as low as 2MB RAM
(Mine has 4MB).
I only compile new kernels on my Red Hat machine and yes I do compile
it for the 386:
# Processor type and features
My 386 boots stock 2.4.3 fine but not 2.4.7.

You can do always try to install from the harddrive or via NFS, ftp or
http from your other machines. Red Hat does a lot of smart things during
the install and you have to make sure that for instance glibc is not
the i686 rpm.
