if you just want to use windows period, then i assume you have the win98 install cd correct. just boot to the cd and click install. you'll have to tell it to delete all the partitions that redhat created (i believe is no more than 3). if it refuses to install, then boot with a 98bootdisk floppy. at the a prompt>fdisk /mbr do that atleast twice then>fdisk then the rest is just a matter of reading the screen thoroughly and deleting the partitions i believe is option 3. then reboot and fdisk again and do option 1 create primary partition and yes make it active and use large disk support and maximum size available. reboot again and type>format c: after that you should be able to boot with the install cd and install. all in all should just take you less than hour to complete not including insalling your personal software ex: printer, office suite, games etc. if you don't have a bootdisk, you can go to bootdisk.com and make one. hope this helps you.
on a side note:get a couple two or three live linux cd's and just check them out. i'd recommend ubuntu, dsl (damn small linux), or some debian version. they'll run in memory and not touch the harddrive. they are fairly easy and better newbie friendly. not that i'm knocking redhat, it's a good distro on its own.
