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.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html

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.
