When booted into Redhat, you can mount the XP partition somewhere and
copy over the .mbox files.  XP's filesystem is usually ntfs, although if
you've upgraded from win98 or so, it might be vfat.  So (assuming ntfs):
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt

find /mnt -name *.mbx

And then check out this page:

There's also a utility out there called mbx2mbox (google will findit for
you) that converts .mbx files to standard linux mbox files, but I think
that only works for older versions of Outlook.
