Hello,
I will definitely help you out..But lemme explain you one thing.
Its always recommended to install windows first and then install Linux on it.
But if You installed windows after linux it will edit the bootloader and you wont see OS options and thats why everytime you need to manually start the Windows

Even if you want Windows Xp on Linux, do lemme know what steps you are facing problem at.

As u said, installing Linux on Windows machine is better rather than doing it the other way around....

I would like to know if i can remove Linux first and install Windows on to the clean hard disk.... And then freshly install RHEL4....

Can i go this way???
But i want to know the procedure of doing the above mentioned task....

Please help me....

Thanks for ur time and support....
