Hi all,
I have already installed XP and Ubuntu on the same disk. And now I want to install Red Hat.
How do i go about doing this?

Well, I would suggest to create virtual machine for the task. VirtualBox would be really easy and friendly for you to start.

Stick the CD/DVD in, reboot.
Might pay to read the install guide.

Thanks!
Yes, Virtual Box is one option.

But i would benefit from someone else's experience, experience of installing Xp, Ubuntu and Red Hat on the same disk.

Thanks Again.

If you have an available unused partition on the drive it would be pretty easy, just boot RH and make sure no other partition is touched during installation, to be formated or installed to, etc.

If you have to resize partitions that might get messy. It's best to plan it out before hand... have three partitions + swap if you want, install XP, then RH, then Ubuntu.
