Dual boot with RedHat8

Hello all...
I'm not a Linux newbie, but have never had to install RedHat8 with dual boot before.
I've partitioned my HDD as necessary for two operating systems, but I don't know what to do in the RedHat installer.
I get up to the point of selecting auto partition and whatnot, and I know I don't want it to auto-partition, but when I click on manual partition, I don't know what to do... Can someone please help?

make partitions for the linux OS of course

you can make atleast three partitions to be safe /, swap and /usr.

then install a bootloader. both grub and lilo should be able to pick up the other OS,
