This is for testing purposes and would really help me out.

After the install of linux i will be installing Oracle10G on the linux box.

Has anyone got a how to guide on how to dual boot both redhat linux and Windows server.

A speediant reply much appreciated and thanks to all who respond in advance

The installation is easy enough

Though it might be an idea to use another HDD as 40 GIG isn't overly big.

But no matter what if you want to use only what you have you'll first need to shrink down the existing Partition and then install Red Hat to the unallocated Space or download either VM Ware or Windows Virtual Server and then load the Linux Distro into a Virtual Machine to boot from within Windows. Though the second option isn't technically Dual Booting it may be what suits your needs better.
