Rescue Mode should be independent of whatever is on your hard drive. It's root fs should be on a ramdisk. You then make a folder in this ramdisk (mkdir /hd3) and mount your /dev/hda3 to it (mount /dev/hda3 /hd3 -t ext3) so you can see if it's the right partition ('ls /hd3', you should see various linux files), and check if a certain configuration file is correct (cat /hd3/etc/fstab). 'fdisk -l' lists your partitions.

Take a look at this:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...ide/index.html
During the install, create a FAT32 partition (vfat) to exchange files between Win and Linux, since A) Linux can't write to NTFS without damaging it, and B) In Red Hat, to read NTFS you have to add support manually.

To install, just press enter (without anything).
