You can only have one labeled as the primary (master); the other is necessarily secondary (slave). But, you can make them both bootable, which is what I think you're looking for. Since you're using RH, are you also using grub as your bootloader? If so, install grub to the MBR, and edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, or /etc/grub.conf, whatever it is that RH uses, to boot both OS's.
