Exclamation redhat9 not booting

hi All,

I installed Redhat9 in my system yesterday and it was working fine. After some-time I installed windows-xp on the same system. I hav'nt created boot-floppy disk. But I have all the 3 redhat-9 cds with me. Please tell me how can I again boot into Linux ?
(The primary disk was used by Windows OS, I installed linux in a logical drive)

Can I use linux rescue-mode for this? how? Please also mention if there is any other way for booting the system into linux rather than complete re-installation of linux.
(I don't care about the Window OS installed)

Thanx in Advance..

You don't need to install linux again, just the boot manager. If you boot from the Redhat install cd you should be able to do this one way or another (I don't use redhat so I don't know the specifics).
Look for a repair option, or try "reinstalling" without actually formating your disk or installing any packages.

Just FYI, RH9 is very old and not supported. It's been replaced by the RH Fedora core series, which is up to v7 (!) now.
In the long run, you'll find it much better to install this (or another up-to-date distro), especially for modern hardware drivers.
