There are two ways to do this cleanly. The easiest is being VMware. This will create a "virtual machine" inside of rh and allow you to install W$ndows and all applications without resorting to having a dual-boot system. The other is to use LiLo and create a partition for W$ndows itself and you can boot from one to the other. Open a console and use " man lilo " or look it up on any Linux forums.

VMware also has a version for 2000 that can run Linux under 2000 but I haven't tried it yet.
