you have to install a redhat machine (maybe in a desktop emulator like

redhat installation from other distributions into a directory), and take
this as the base for your VM.

You >might< be able to boot the RedHat Install CD from a domU and it install to the system. Then go in and make some modifications (kernel, modules, tls, etc.) modify the domU config to boot the new system, then go from there. See this site - http://wiki.sourcemage.org/Install_under_Xen of course maybe this won't work out for a RedHat install... For instance, does RedHat still provide a text based installer option?
