    Have you set CD/DVD drive as First Boot Device in BIOS?
    Which version of RedHat are you planning to install?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Red hat doesnt automatically detects other OS and adds it in Grub menu.
    you have to manually add the enrty of Windows.
    In this case: file to edit
    /etc/grub.conf
    you have to add
    title Windows Xp
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    makeactive
    chainloader +1
    remeber replace (hd<drirve no>,<partition no>)
    of Windows installation, 0 is 1st drive & 0 is 1st Partition.
