Ok i would suggest that you could maybe read 2 tutorials that will answer your questions.
My guide to re-partitioning, re-formatting, and re-installing
And Computernerds tutorial on
How to create a dual boot operating system for a new PC.
And if you need further assistance then i'd be more then willing to help..

Most commercial linux distro's can partition the drive for you. No work on your part involved. You shouldnt need to reformat the machine. However, backup your data on another hard drive if possible, because you might run into problems.

Do a dual partition. RH9 will do that for you during setup. You can then install a boot loader (i recommend lilo) and choose which OS to boot to.

Make sure to put windows on the first partition of the first masterdrive. It doesn't like to be ran over.
