Hi guys,

I know this is probably a basic question, but I'm having real
difficulty in trying to figure out a way of installing a rhel 3 (not a
yum distro) domU. I'm stumped for ideas, everywhere else it talks
about installing fedora but it has the luxury of using yum. Please can
someone help me with a guide as to how to accomplish this. I've
searched google but I'm not having much luck.

So far I've got a partition /dev/hda5. I ran MAKEDEV, but after this
I'm stuck  about do I install an the os  into it?

I've done this before where I do a normal OS install on a separate
partition, then use that as DomU.

The only thing to watch, if you do this on the same machine, is to tell the RHEL3 installer not to install a bootloader or you'll break your dom0.

There's definitely the option in RHEL3's installer; I've done exactly this. I don't believe you even need to use 'expert' mode.
