Install XP first and then RedHat an install the bootloader into the MBR.
My XP has not had a problem with sharing the drive with win98 and Redhat
9. I don't chose to repair boot record problems when I run Norton Utils

I should be asking about mounting NTFS also.

The 1st time I installed the bootloader into the 1st sector of the boot partition. But it didn't work. The 2nd time I installed the bootloader into the MBR. But many people said that XP gets very upset to see other OS's bootloader. Althought it seemed to be working(in terms of I can boot into both XP and RedHat), I couldn't mount the NTFS by recompiling the kernel.
