Win2k and Linux 7.1 dual boot?

Recently purchased RedHat7.1 and now want to install Win2k and 7.1 on the same harddrive.  Now i have done this before with 7.0 and Win2k on seperate harddrives but i am having problems now.  Here are the steps i took: Installed Win2k and created 2 partitions...formatted one of the partitions NTFS and installed win2k on that partition. Created recovery disks. Started Linux install and used diskdruid.  Once in diskdruid all it picks up is the NTFS partition and won't allow me to go any further.  When i do try to make the partitions it give me this error, "...not enough allocated memory....bootsector /boot Not enough free space....".  So i'm thinking to myself that it didn't pick up the second partition.  So i then use fdisk to delete the second partition and recreate it and the same thing happens.  I will be using the NT Loader instead of LILO to boot and i have the proper steps in completing that but I can't even get past the install.  I'm sitting here looking at a useless machine,,please help!!!

How much RAM do you have?
What about a swap partition?

I created /swap at twice my ram.  Then i went to create the / partition and it wouldn't let me.  It gives me the error i gave above.  I'm thinking that i need to back off on the size of the win2k partition down to about 7gb and make a /boot partition of 30mb or so that way it will be within the first 1024cylinders.  What do you think?
