If it were me, I would download a simple partitioning program, put it on a bootable floopy, and use it to erase the whole hard drive. Then try instaling windows. Look into an older version of Partition Magic, or check out for other ideas

But I think you better reinstall redhat and when in Disk Druid menu for partitioning choose vfat partition for your linux partition, then you can delete it later with DOS fdisk.
