creating distribution installation disks with speakup in the kernel

Hello all..

I've compiled a kernel which I'm using with slackware, but I'm considering 
trying out redhat to see which I like better. I've noticed several 
boot/install disks for several distributions, and am wondering how they 
were made. I've looked at the redhat installation disk, and can't find much 
more than the kernel, leading me to believe that some of the installation 
is done by ther kernel itself? That doesn't make sense, as the kernel 
should just act as a kernel, but that's all that I can think of.

Any suggestions on creating the disks?
