I have a doubt, whethet i could do the kickstart installation without the bootable media in RedHat Enterprise Linux ES 4.0.

It's possible to avoid booting from floppy, CD/DVD-ROM, hard disk, or USB key if you have network boot (PXE) support in the BIOS, or provided by a local alternative (etherboot or Windows RIS disk).

and what is the difference between the dhcp and bootp protocol.

At a basic level they both provide support for assinging an IP address to a host over the network. bootp pre-dates DHCP by a good while, and DHCP supports many more options to convey settings other than IP address.
