From your subject line, I assume the system that does have network access
is a Macintosh, presumably running MacOS. Since all recent versions of
MacOS include support for FAT floppies, there shouldn't be any real
problems; just pop a FAT floppy into the drive and copy the files onto
that floppy. Red Hat can read FAT floppies "out of the box," too, so from
there you just mount the floppy (or use mtools if you prefer).
