This is not the redhat mail list.  You might want to direct your
questions to their list or use their tech support since you paid for
it.  The way you have things set up for the moment you will have to
use the boot disk you made for redhat to boot into redhat.  To boot
off the hard drive you can add a boot manager such as "lilo."  This
will give you the option of booting into redhat or windows.  See
"man lilo" for more details.
