Argh, feeling bad replying to my own post but for future reference for 
anyone else:

Start the install in 'expert' mode.
'Cancel' the driver disk dialog.
Choose keyboard and language.
At the 'special devices' screen, choose 'Add new devices'.
Find 'Mylex DAC960', choose OK.
And from then on, it works beautifully, the Redhat partition program even 
understands the DAC960 /dev/rd/* notation.
