But after that windows XP cannot boot... the problem is on startup the linux bootloader GRUB is not allowing windows XP to boot. Can I find a solution for that? And also should I can uninstall Linux from my system?

My problems are these can any one say a solution?

Red Hat 9 is rather old (released in 2003), you might have better luck with Linux using Fedora 7 (based on RH) or Ubuntu.

To uninstall GRUB boot loader (and restore Windows XP's boot loader) you need to use fixboot C: and fixmbr commands in Recovery Console.

See this how to get into recovery console, requires XP CD:
Description of the Windows XP Recovery Console.

Then, when you are in the recovery console, execute those two commands and they should remove GRUB.
