If you want to dual boot you'll need to add the other entries to your bootloader. Are you using Lilo or Grub?

IMHO if I were you I'd rather install the dual boot like this :
Choice 1 : Redhat 8.0
Choice 2 : Slackware 8.1
Choice 3 : Mandrake 9.0
Choice 4 : Erase all Windows-based data
Choice 5 : Wipe MS out of my house

Cool to have fun sometimes.
