I know of no tool to easily create redhat base systems / chroots on
Debian (and i've searching for this in course of some other development)

If Centos is "enough" for you, you have two options:

1) use a readily built base image from

2) try to bootsrap a basic image with rpmstrap:
( with this, your mileage may vary, I had problems with it, but theres a
new version in the meantime which I didn't test yet)

If you really need exactly redhat, as Redhat is not free to distribute,
you have to install a redhat machine (maybe in a desktop emulator like
qemu) make a chroot there (lookup docs to build redhat chroots, or
redhat installation from other distributions into a directory), and take
this as the base for your VM.

I'd be heavily interested if you find another way!
