Angry hal.dll problem

i have 80 GB seagate baracudda,it has 5 GB,20 GB, 20 GB & 30 GB partitions RESPECTIVELY.(Made with seagate diskwizzard).5 GB is left empty

c: is system partition(5 gb primary partition )
d:,e:,& f: are logical partitions

d is boot partition for winxp

i installed redhat 8.0 on 5 gb empty space

every thing went fine i.e grub is properly loaded and showing option for dos and linux

but when i clicked dos it shows me the error

Well this would seem more like a problem with Windows than Linux. Some how one way or another you either lost, deleted or that file is corrupted. I'd say try to boot into safe mode or a Windows boot disk and try to recover that dll file. Other than that, your probably better off asking this in a Windows forum, probably gonna get faster and better responses there.
