Welcome to linux.

These are very common questions asked and I am sure if you search the site or the web you can find lots of answers.

I will assume your XP partitions are NTFS. Redhat does not include ntfs filesystem support in its default kernel. NTFS write support is experimental and not recommended.

To see how your disk is partitioned you can use fdisk (logon as root)
fdisk -l /dev/hda (thats a small L)

/dev/hda is 1st ide controller master
/devhdb is 1st ide controller slave
/dev/hdc is 2nd ide controller master
/dev/hdd is 2nd ide controller slave
etc. etc etc

Partitions are labeled hda1, hda2, ...

see man pages for mount and fstab for help mounting.
