Well, you're almost right. You don't need to "be" a server, but you must "have" a server for the first three methods. The fact that you're using a Linux workstation tells me that you have a potential server sitting on your desk. If you can get from your VM system to your workstation on port 80 or 21/20, you're all set.
If that's not possible, then to get your installation files on DASD, you'll need to:
1. IPL a starter kernel, parmfile and initrd
2. See if you can run dasdfmt, fdasd, and mke2fs from the installer
3. Mount the new file system
4. Copy all the files from the CDs to the file system you just created.
Now, the Red Hat installer isn't going to let you do any of that unless you can establish network connectivity to your Linux workstation. If you could do that, you wouldn't be using this method in the first place. So, I recommend downloading one of my Slack/390 installation kernels and initrds, and using that to do the setup I listed above. After that, you should be able to start the Red Hat installation process.
