Dual boot XP Pro & Redhat 9.0

I would like to dual boot XP pro and Redhat 9.0 on my laptop. The laptop is Winbook J4 2.8GHz with 512MB and 60GB HD. Has anyone done this yet with 9.0? Thanks for the help!

Yup, I have RH 9 and XP Pro running great. I am on a Sony Vaio XG-39. I started with RH 8, and just upgraded to 9. Absolutely NO problems.
