i am a new linux user.i have tried to install red hat 7.0 with my
windows xp on the same computer without using any additional hard disk.

What partition scheme do you have?

Were you able to boot into linux using the boot disk? You simply put the disk in the drive and reboot the machine. Upon boot-up it will load linux if the disk is alright.

Did you install/configure lilo/grub during the install? Did it install okay? Did it fail? What were the errors?
