First, welcome aboard.

Second...please write and spell clearly. It's almost impossible to understand what you're asking.


If you're asking "How do I load Linux on my PC", put the CD/DVD in the drive, boot from it, and follow the instructions. Does Linux have viruses? Not in the same sense Windows does, but there are vulnerabilities, but they're dealt with much more quickly than Windows, and (unless you run as root all the time), cause little damage.

ajay;

We appreciate that English is not your first language. If you at least put spaces between sentences and start each sentence with a capital letter, it will make a big difference.

Do you already have a Linux CD or DVD? If so, simply put in the Optical drive and boot up. If it is a "Live Linux", then you will be put in a running system which will hava an installer.

Note that you need some space on the drive which is empty (i.e. unpartitioned). This is not the same as empty space on a partition. (Note that Windows uses the term "Drive" to refer to a partition.
