You will need to split the disk into two partitions, Install windows on one partition, then boot from RedHat CD and install Redhat on the other partition. Using either GRUB or LILO to start the system up, it will detect both partitions and ask you each time you boot which OS you want.
NB if your second partition starts after Cylinder 1024 on the disk, you will have to enable LBA.

it's for GRUB, you can also thinking of using LILO have a check here http://www.littlewhitedog.com/reviews_other_00011.asp

LILO and GRUB is the boot manager can handle multible OS on the same PC/server.

or you can thinking of using the nt bootloader as boot manager have a check here http://www.prosig.com/protor/kbase/NT-Linux-boot.html

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
