Cool partitioning redhat 9

I am trying to install redhat that dual boots with windows XP. I have already installed XP and partitioned my harddisk to 2 parts. When I come to the partition hardisk screen, it refuses to let me choose 'automatic partition'. I chose 'manual partition' instead, but I got more problems.

here's an overview of my partition:
/dev/hda1 ntfs 15000MB
/dev/hda2 /boot 100MB
/dev/hda3 / 5120MB
/dev/hda4 swap 512MB

When I tried to add partition for hda2, hda3, hd4, there was a message saying that the current boot architecture is not recommended, a boot disk is recommended. I did not know what to do with these messages, so I clicked continue.

Can someone help with my install. did I do something wrong?
