Install linux and then use the boot disk to start linux while restarting the system.

The easiest way to configure a dula-boot system is to install windows first.
Next, install linux. During the install you will be able to select the default boot OS for your system.
Regardless of your selection, you will still be able to boot intothe other OS at boot time.
Once Linux is installed, reboot the system.
Depending on the linux distributions you use, you will receive either a graphical login screen, where you select the OS to boot into, or you will receive a text prompt.
Press <traat the text prompt to see you boot options.
Enter the name of the OS you want to boot into, and that OS will boot.

Look around the Techproguild / Linux track at this site, and you will almost certainly find
more information. A good starting point is Jack Wallen's article:
