During the install of RH 8 it will setup your dual boot for you, you shouldn't have to do more than select which one to boot. There are threads around here on editing your boot loader if you choose not to use the linux boot loader (you can use NTLDR the windoze bootloader to boot linux) but you are just as well off using the linux (rh) boot loader.

Cool

Place your CD in your CDROM drive tray, let the installer boot up, follow the questions, answer as your needs require, and when you get to the part of installing a bootloader simply go with the default choices. 9 times out of 10, this works beautifully. Occasionally (due to choices made before this stage) there is a hiccup of sorts, but that's what the bootdisk creation section is for.

The screen you get to should look something like...:

You might take a look at this to help guide you through the install:

And what was I thinking earlier, pardon me:
Welcome to LQ :)

Cool
