Red Hat 7.2 Installation Help

I have two hard disks. In the first one I have windows 98, windows 2000 and windows XP. I still have a lot of plenty space too. Can you please tell me what I should do to install Redhat 7.2? Should I install it in the first hard disk or the second one? How should I partition my hard disks? I have Partition Magic, should I use it? Or not? Thank you!!!!

if your second disk is empty or not in use.. install redhat there. and i wouldn't mess with partition magic if it is empty or you have no problems wiping it out.. then you can use disk druid during the install to partition your linux install..

Yes but how do we use Disk Druid? I let Redhat partition my second hard disk, but then I cannot start windows anymore!!! I can just work with Linux!!!! It gives me the following message:

Booting 'DOS'
>rootnoverify (hd1,4)
>chainloader +1
>Invalid system disk
>Replace the disk, and then press any key
what should I do to be able to run my windows too?
