Installing is as simple as booting from the cd/dvd and following the onscreen instructions. Before you do any of that I suggest you defrag winblows and then go for the install.

A couple of resources to get you started.

By Redhat 4 I hope you mean Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. RedHat 4 would be ancient.

Unetbootin can help you install CentOS 5.1 on a pc which already has windows installed. CentOS strives to be 100% binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. They just remove the Red Hat trademarked logos and name.

You can also follow the directions to install other distros, such as RHEL.

Unetbootin can install linux just like any other windows application installation wizard.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is pretty ancient itself, 2005 I think.
