A short answer is "yes." But, the procedure for making it happen depends on the desktop you use. Gnome, KDE, xfce, lxde, and most other desktops have a setting for launching a list of applications when you login to a desktop. For example, with KDE, the list is found in systemsettings -> System Administration -> Startup and Shutdown -> Autostart.

If you are learning Linux, Use VmWare Virtual Machine for linux from Windows OS. It will not damage your pc and keep safe..
VmWare is good software for running double os at a same time...

Vishal,

This can be accomplished in a variety of ways. The easiest is probably to add it to the .Xsession file. You could create a launcher and add it to the startup programs from the menu in rhel 6. It could be launched from /etc/rc.local as well. I recommend adding to the .Xsession file.
