Well the installation on laptop is exactly similar to that of a desktop. I guess your problem was how to install linux.. Well first you need to partition your disk to make some free space. Then boot the system through your linux bootable disk and the installation will start. Here you must be really careful about choosing right partition/free space for linux, otherwise you might end up loosing your windows data. In linux disk drives are named as sda1 ,sda2... you must doubly check which drive is windows...
After you have got the actuall free space to be used you will have to make 3 partitions (which is usually from the linux setup.. sometimes it is automated as well), one as swap space, which is double the capacity of your RAM , other is mount and root partitions.
