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.

So, how it seems, there isn't any working OS on your PC anymore. But to help you, I need some information:
- how big is your hd
- how are the partitions
- which OSs are installed
- do you know you use grub or lilo
- is there any data to be saved
So, then take your Xp cd, boot it and (i just think you have ~100GB hd)delete all the partitions. then make a 20GB partition for xp, format it with ntfs and go on installing. after installing it, open computer administration (search it - i'm german and don't know it were to find it in an eng xp) Then open disk managment and you should see your hd. there should be a 20gb ntfs partitions and 80gb free. if you want, make some extra partitions, just leave ~10-20gb for rhl. reboot your pc and install rhl. it schould automatically detect win and after it is installed you should be able to boot both rhl and xp.
