helping with patitions


hey guys i recently installed Red Hat Linux and everything went perfect but one thing... i dont think my swaps are working correctly...i want to be able to swap back from Linux and Windows..but it seems when my computer starts up it gives me the option to chose over DOS and Red Hat and if u chose DOS it takes you to a recovery screen and im guessing the swap goes to me other HD which is my recovery HD any way i can fix this? ;[ many thanks in advanced.

Post your /etc/grub.conf (This is the default bootloader)

Post the output of (need to be root):
fdisk -l (That is a small L)

need to be root i.e. use the su command in a terminal console or log on a root.
