Redhat no longer maintains erratta for 8.0 and to get what the have found requires downloading a new up2date program

I would install everything (it take ~ 2hrs)  that way you have plenty of stuff to play with

Install windows first. Install linux second. Use GRUB bootloader, not lilo.
The following is a basic GRUB config for dual booting; if you use a different partitioning scheme and/or kernel image, adjust accordingly. However, make sure that anything that follows a GRUB-device (such as (hd0,0)) is relative to the mountpoint, not the root. In other words, (hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz is in reality /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz since (hd0,0)
is /boot

default 0
timeout 30
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
