please help me

my problems are:

1. redhat cant mount winXP partition

2. windows mostly refuses to boot

what i did before:

i downloaded the 3 redhat iso's from your site

then i made a new partition with partition magic, formatted that partition and installed linux


i started linux and was happy, then i recogniced that linux didnt mount my windows hdd's

i tryed to start windows, the first time it worked, then the second time it hang itself up on the startup screen (and the third time and the fourth time....)
booting windows was only possible in secure mode. I tried to reset windows to some previous settings, but still couldn't boot the "normal" mode.


after some struggling i came to the decision that its best to format C: and reinstall everything (which is a huge load of work with my sytem)

i wanted to start windows in secure mode to create some backups but missed to select the secure mode, accidently it started in normal mode, but this time windows didnt hang itself up

now: what should i do

live in fear that my windows wont boot next time i start it -> never reboot again

format C:

wait on your good advise on how to fix the problems

By default Redhat does not include NTFS support in its default kernel.
To add support:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/

It is best to leave unallocated space for linux. Most distros default install actually create more then one partition. There can be problems with creating partitions with PM and linux so I wouldn't create partitions prior to installing.

And this time you should format it partitions as FAT32.
