Note::: This article for Linux newbie...
Here is how you can install Linux operating system without disturbing your windows OS.

1) Boot windows and check for free partition space of about 10GB.
You can do it by START->Administrative Tools ->Computer Management -> Disk Management
Now check for free space.
If you have used full disk for your windows partition like C:, D: , E: etc. Then you have to free one partition. for example if your windows is installed in C: drive then you can move all data of e: drive to d: drive. Then remove e: drive using disk management.

So now you have one >10 GB free partition.

2) Reboot from linux install DVD.
Rest tomorrow....
Ok dear I am continuing......
3) In disk partitioning setup you will be prompted to select type of installation
Select "use free space option"

4) In boot loader configuration select the preferred(default) operation system (mostly windows).
also check.

So follow rest of the process and select desired packages etc.
After installation is complete reboot the system and voila you can now boot two different os from same pc..... :wlcm
