The setup is called 'dual boot'. If you want more that two OSs, it's 'multi boot'. It's fairly easy and quite comon to do.

Just start your favorite browser and go to www.google.com/linux, and search for: ubuntu "dual boot".
You will find much documentation to read.

You will also need to read up on partitioning. I'm sure whatever documentation you find related to dual booting will include this. But just a heads up.
