If you want to install linux, first you have to choose a distribution and get an installation CD of your selected distribution.
Secondly you need enough free space on your hard disk.
That’s all. Then boot from the CD and install linux.
If you want windows and linux on the same machine it is better to install windows and then linux. If you have already windows installed it is a good idea to make a backup of your data before installing linux.
