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.

Don't worry, got it to work. I rewrote the Lilo.conf the way u have it and copied the RedHat kernel image to /boot/ in the Debian partition.
That worked, I can boot on to the RedHat partition now, but i have a problem with Xwindows, doesn't load now. Not sure if it has anything to do with the way i booted up to RedHat or just something else. I should be able to figure out whats goin' on there, at leaset i can boot on to the partition now.
Thanks heaps for all the help, will post another massage once i've got xwin running as well.
Thanx for all the help Linus, just wanted to update how it went.
First of all that coping Redhat kernel image to Debian partition /boot/ didn't really work. It gave me other probelms. So anyways i had to go back to setting up Lilo for the scratch. So for other users reference, below is how i fixed it.
I reinstalled lilo on RedHat and placed it in the MBR and placed the Debian lilo on it own partition (/hda3). Finally edited the Lilo.conf on Redhat to see Debian partition. Below is how the lilo.conf looks.
