Different Linux distributions have different installation procedures, although most are self-explanatory. Ubuntu, for instance, defaults to the option to automatically resize a Windows partition, or you can specify the new size manually. If you do it manually, make sure you also create a swap partition.

I would be tempted to use a virtual machine such as vmplayer.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

when you boot from the ubuntu cd you will go into a live enviro. start the install to hard drive and then in the partitioning part select install them side by and and let me choose at startup. You can also resize your windows partition using gparted or during the setup and use the free space for your linux install. it will install grub bootloader
