    Cool image....

    If you already have windows installed, you just have to install linux on the free-space of the disk and use dualboot. Then on bootup you can choose which os you want to run. Linux or Windows.

    During boot, is the raid recognized?

    EDIT
    You probably have to get drivers from promise and put them on a floppy so redhat can use them during install.
