Assuming you have a windows "C drive", create a link cdrive as in mkdir
/mnt/cdrive
then Edit /etc/fstab...(read the fstab and mount manpages)
create an entry in /etc/fstab with your4 fav editor
/dev/hda1 /mnt/cdrive vfat user,exec,umask=0 0 0
Check whether your windows "cdrive" is really on /dev/hda1

Lots of 'em...try
vi/emacs/jed/nano/pico/xemacs/scite/xedit/kwriter/gedit....look in the CDs for
these or soem similar sounding packages

cd /usr/src/linux...
http://www.kernel.org
If you want the src of the packages, try
http://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/en/os/i386/SRPMS/

Check which bootloader yuo are using....for lilo, check /etc/lilo.conf and for
grub, try  editing it from the boot menu

REad the redhat manual from their website....
