Linux wont boot after installation

I am having problems booting red had on my computer

I have one SATA HD with windows XP and one HD that I installed Linux on. The Linux HD is on IDE1 and the jumper is set to master. Now whenever I boot up windows XP always starts, I never even get a boot loader.

Any help would be appreciated I am very new

if you installed a boot loader, my guess si you installed it on the wrong drive, the bios looks for the first sector on the first drive, wich i think is your sata hd. boot from the redhat cd and install a boot loader on the sata drive
