  Why?  Is this a system with only one CD-ROM drive and no floppy?  If so,
you will not be able to eject the install CD to insert the "driver CD"  
anyway.  You could, in theory, update the drivers on the CD, but it would
involve rebuilding several parts of the Red Hat distribution (kernels,
modules, boot images, device info, CD...), which I imagine isn't fun.

  If that isn't what you're talking about... what are you talking about?
