RedHat on dual hdd's


i have a box with dual hdd's.
on one i have windows installed and on the other i have some games and stuff nothing really important.
the first hdd is nothing i wanna touch or mess with since i wanna keep my windows stuff.
but the second hdd i would like to install linux on.
now i have redhat 8.0 but it wont boot directly from the cd when i start it so i got a bootdisk and got into some kind of command line that starts with boot: but what should i type here to make it start from the cd and install redhat?

Just press enter or type:
linux

then enter.

This will start a basic install - there are more advanced options if you run into problems.

That is what I mean - at the "boot:" prompt press enter.
