Yes. Either lilo (linuxloader) or Grub. I think recent releases of Redhat
installs Grub as boot loader. No Problem.

Support for PIV is built into the kernel. No Problem.

Installer ought to see the windows partition (FAT32) and accordingly resize
the partition to create swap and root partitions for Linux. No problem.
Also I would rather install Mandrake or SuSE for the first taste of linux.
Not to flame Redhat users here thought but it seems it is not geared
towards a home/desktop use as much as SuSE or Mandrake.
Either way Go for it.
Here is screenshots of redhat install process and other info.
