You have to have a bootloader installed on the MBR of the windows drive, such as GRUB or Lilo. If I understand you right, you are currently only able to boot into Red Hat 9 and not Windows. That is why you cannot "see" the Windows bootloader, it is going directly to EH9. However, I have to tell you that you will have a difficult time running Fedora Core 5 with only 192mb of memory if you are going to use a desktop GUI (Gnome or KDE). I am faily certain you can install without a GUI with 192mb of memory.

Search these threads for instructions on how to install GRUB if you want to dual boot with Windows.
