If you download Ubuntu Linux you can install it as a "dual Boot" computer. I will leave Windows where it is and add itself to the end of you hard drive. The next time you turn on the PC it will ask you which operating System you want to start.
Google Ubuntu for more info. Good luck with Linux.

There is an easy way to install Ubuntu to be dual boot with windows , you can install it inside windows like you install any software in windows.
