Re: linux os

I don't use Red Hat so I can't be specific.

In general, if you install Windows first, then Linux, the Linux installer will ask how to partition the disk and will install a boot loader (probably Grub or Lilo).

If you do it the other way around, Linux first then Windows, the Windows installer will overwrite the boot loader and the Linux partition will seem to disappear.

You can usually fix this from a 'live' CD distribution by rebuilding the boot loader but how it is done will depend on the version of Red Hat you are using. Look for help on installing boot loaders and you should find some clues.

Brian.
