windows and redhat9


i have redhat9 on my laptop, i wanted to know how do i put windows xp on it with out deleting redhat. I should have put windows first then redhat but i got too much stuff on it to delete it.
I have a 20gig harddrive with 6gig for redhat and 1 gig for swap. The rest is unpartitioned.

Umm, I dunno if laptops are different, but can't you just boot off the XP CD and install on the unpartitioned space? Shouldn't be hard at all... I would advise making a boot disk though as Windows will take over and you will have to set up Grub/Lilo
