dual boot installation problem

hi guys,

i am having a problem. I have installed Redhat linux 7.3.i already had windows Xp installed. now after the installation when i start my pc. i do not get any option to load linux.PC simply boots to window-xp.

Although i have taken full care during installation. i have installed linux on d drive. and windows was on c drive. i guess there is some problem with loader... could you please suggest solution so that i get two options ie which os to load. when i boot my pc.

First thing I would do is get a newer version of linux, if you want Red Hat Fedora 8 is the newest version. The version you have is not supported and hasn't been for some time.
