Not really a networking question....

On your computers at work, you better not do anything like partitioning unless you also dislike your job.
You could ask the IT dept. if it's ok to install VMware on the Windows box. Then you can install Linux on VMware without harming the Windows install.

You might read up on it and don't forget to ask first as that is very important.
