You should install Windows first and leave an open partition on the hard drive and put Red Hat there afterwards, I think. Then you should get lilo or grub to boot to whichever OS you want.

You should be able to install Windows the normal way with redhat installed.

If your CD isnt booting, its not Linux's fault.

Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD.
