Hm, you're in uncharted waters here... for starters, the 2nd stage image
contains modules that will probably try to load. That won't work if you
are running a different kernel when you boot the installer. Also, 2.4.5
is a "pure" Linus kernel + XFS, with none of Red Hat's additions, this
may cause unknown problems.

Where'd this driver disk come from? If it has modules that work with RH
7.1, those won't load under the 2.4.5 kernel.
Let's back up and see what the errors are when you try the original XFS
installer boot floppy?
