i don't think that screenshots could tell you what you need to do, lol.
do you already have redhat downloaded and burned to cd's? what version of redhat are you wanting to use? because if its redhat 9, that has been replaced with fedora and the current version of fedora is called fedora core 5 which you can download from one of these mirrors: http://fedora.redhat.com/Download/mirrors.html

have you searched google for what you want? i'm sure you could find a good tutorial on how to install linux that would have some accompanying screenshots. but yea - if you could first get back to what version of redhat you're wanting to install, that would help us help you. also, you're going to have to resize your windows xp partition so that you have some unpartitioned space on your hard drive where linux can install. there are a number of programs for doing this but i believe the most popular one that windows users use is called Partition Magic which you can download a free trial of here :)

Professor ..Thanks for the encouraging reply. I am flexible on what version of Linux I can install. You can get me started with any Red-Hat version you have the Screen-shot available. I don't have the Software CDs yet. However that's not a problem as I am looking for real basic screen-shot kind help and then I can get the matching Red-Hat download or even buy from somewhere. I do own the Partition magic so I have just created the Partition ready to install Linux On.

Please let me know what screen-shot help you can get me,

I am happy to found this forum...May be spend some time every day to learn more ..
