Can you describe your problems? What distro are you trying to install and how far in the installation process have you made to? Do you see any errors on the screen?
Dual booting Linux with windows has been covered in threads here at LQ. You just want to search and look into them.

Run Google with keywords like "dual booting Linux Vista tutorial" and sort out the results. You will most certainly need a LiveCD to run a repartitioner tool like QParted, because Vista is likely to cover your entire hard disk.
