You are giving very vague answers, that makes it difficult to help. Can you try and take the habit of posting commands that you issued and their output?

Go and read an installation howto and make a decision if you want to try. The least that you can try without risk is downloading the iso, burning it to CD and starting a live session. That does not changed your current system. But if you do manage to get that far, the rest is reasonably easy.

Before anything else, backup your data though...
