you will choose the partitions inside the redhat install... just follow the wizard.

Chris is absolutely right. Right after choosing the installation type, your next screen will be the Disk Partitioing one. It has three options, choose the third: Keep all partitions and use existing free space.

Then the neat thing happens--Red Hat displays how it thinks it ought to use the space. Until you learn how (and why) to use a different approach, just use theirs.

That's all there is to setting up the partition.

Or if you want to learn more read the Manual, or some partitioning howto (great site is )
