Are we talking about RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux)?

From your title I presume you want to dual boot. If so, just make sure you make some space on the hard drive and install it there. Grub will recognise both systems and let you choose which one you want to start.

On a separate note, if you're using RHEL you should have got Red Hat's paid support. Use it then. If you have not acquired their lincence. You might be better off running CentOS (a free clone of RHEL stripped of RH's branding).

FYI, RHEL 5.x is not the latest one. Check their website.

What's your current partition layout?

Code:
# fdisk -l

I don't exactly understand why you want to do it, but I'm sure you've got your reasons. I'll just repeat it once again:
If you bought Red Hat support, they can guide you through each step. If you haven't bought it, RHEL will be a bit useless as
you won't get any updates. In that case, it's so much better to use CentOS or Scientific Linux.

If you've got 20GB of free space, you can just boot the computer from the RHEL5 cd/dvd and start the installation process.
Make sure you use unallocated space for your new installation. For installation instructions see, RHEL website:

First many many thanks for ur suggestion....

In our project we are using RHCL4.4 version but I had did RHCE certification on RHCL 5.0 so which system i am using that is small data upload server (HP ml-115). In that system i can't do it all RND so I want RHCL 5.0 separate os.
also previously same think i did but that time server is not booting & I have reinstall rhcl4.4 for off work.

One more doubt can install two grub or below steps is enough..


sda5 /
sda6 /swap
sda7 /var

is per my previously mail can make this part. for doul os boot.?

Ok, a few things things.

Just to clarify. RHCL (Red Hat Commercial Linux) is now known as RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux)

Sorry, but I am afraid I have no idea what you are asking about. Can you try to edit your post above using more correct English.

Are you saying that you have RHCE certification?!

You can download boot_info_script from http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/ and run it as root. The output will be stored in RESULTS.txt in that folder which you can post here. It will clarify all the partitions as well as grub and booting info.
