I'm afraid it doesn't sound good for XP to me..

When it got to the part where the install asks if you want to auto partition or partition yourself, what did you do?

Also, when the bootloader screen comes up is there only the choice of redhat there?

This sounds like a case of "Uh-Oh" to me. How many partitions do you have now? As root, a simple

fdisk -l /dev/devicename

with devicename the name your disk (usually hda) should give you the answer.
