    Its a little bit tricky to install Windows OS after Linux. We have to check partition structure of your Hard disk first.
    Execute this :
    Code:
    su -
    /sbin/fdisk -l
    Post output here.

    * Its small L in fdisk -l.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    As DC said, that is difficult, which is why it is always recommended to install Windows first, then Linux for dual-boot systems. Not to say it is impossible, but I don't know how to do it. In any case, if it were me, I'd install VirtualBox on my RHEL system and run Windows in a VM instead. Lots safer and easier, IMO. That's what I do most of the time when I need to run Windows.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
