Hi Don!  You're getting me worried - my wife has been bugging me
for months to install Linux on her 486-66 box!

Probably the best place to get advice is on one of the
comp.os.linux.* newsgroups.  If you bought your RedHat Linux
from RedHat, you are entitled to a couple of months of support
from them.

When I put Linux (RH 5.1) on my P-II machine, the trickiest part
was configuring the disk partitions right.  There were two
different disk partitioning programs I had to use - neither
could do all the necessary things alone.  My setup uses OS/2's
boot manager to select between OS/2 and Linux.  All of that was
described fully in the RedHat installation book.  (I believe
co-existence with an MS OS is trickier, though.)

The toughest part of the process was learning how to use Linux
once it was installed.

Cheers!  Hans
