"GRUB Geom Error" on boot
I just installed Red hat Enterprises Linux 5.5 onto my Laptop (HP pro - compaq nx7400)which had Windows XP Pro already on it. I have two partitons, each OS has their own partition. After installing Red hat Enterprises Linux 5.5, this comes up when I try to boot. I need help. Thanks.

Hi and Welcome !
Boot up from RHEL 5.5 installation media and select 'Boot from Hard disk' option in its startup menu. Does Windows XP or RHEL boot up after that?

As questioned by Devils Casper, are you able to boot into operating system or getting any kind of errors.
As Devils Casper suggested you can boot using rescue disk
If you getting grub prompt while booting.
try this steps out
Check partitions details:-
grub > rootnoverify (partition)
grub > geometry (partition)
Install grub from prompt
grub > grub-install (partition)
it will try install stage1 and stage2
Boot into windows
grub > root (windowspartition)
grub > chainloader +1
Please try this and if you still facing problems please post.
