If it was me, I would:
o install the 40g and verify that the bios and fdisk sees it.
o use e2label to change labels on redhat partitions so new install
does not get confused. cat /etc/fstab for old label/partition names.
o Install on 40g.
o delete hda swap and create one on hdb.
o Boot new redhat install
o mkdir /mnt/old_drive
o mount -t auto /dev/hdaX /mnt/old_drive (you solve for X)
o cp /mnt/old_drive/some/old/files /to/somewhere/else
o Then delete old partitions with PM or fdisk.
