How do you expect anyone to help you, when you don't provide any useful information? What version/distro of Linux? What hardware? What error(s)? With no information, how can we give you 'step-by-step' instructions??
If you didn't create any partitions on your hard drive, where, exactly, did you install Linux? Create partitions, and do the load again. Otherwise, post some actual details, and perhaps you can get help.
