It'll be extremely helpful to get to know grub.conf!  I think RH9 is 
pretty good about recognizing existing installations and working in
harmony with them, but because it'll list your installations by kernel
name, 2 installations of the same OS might be a conflict if you don't
rename the first one in grub.conf beforehand.

The other thing to be comfortable with is the partition editor that's 
called during installation.  You'll definitely want to be specifying 
the partitions on your own.
