Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First of all, maybe you didn't think of this, so: do you have Windows emergency repair disks?
See my post in this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=238285
That post explains how to see what partitions are where using Knoppix. However, you can run fdisk (but to view only and not to write partitions) from your current RedHat installation without using Knoppix. This way you can be sure what is where, which will be useful with GRUB.
