Dual booting is rather easy to do, especially with some of the newer distributions. Boot from the cd, do a custom install to install only to your D drive (back up any important data if you plan to use the whole disk and wipe it during the install, which it will do of course). Follow the steps on whichever distribution you choose and go from there. Run into any problems or need to ask questions, ask away.

Links below? Oh, you might want to indicate if they're part of your signature. I have the viewing of signatures turned off in my profile.

I guess my opinion is different, I hate signatures, they're almost worst than avatars..

Yes. You should be able to dual boot with any distro.
