Did you overwrite your XP install or did you have free space that you installed RH on?

If XP is in fact still on the hard drive simply edit the grub.conf file and add the mount point of your Windows XP. It would be something like:
title Microsoft Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

You will have to figure out the mount point on your system, but that should work.
