You will have to give more information if you expect any help. First off, what distribution of Linux are you using? There are hundreds and there are differences. What installation bug? What happens, exactly? What error messages? Did you download an iso image? Did you burn it to a CD as an image? At a slow speed. Did you run the md5 checksum - isntructions are usually on the download page.

As already asked, you need to be a lot more descriptive about the errors you encounter. We cannot possibly start to help you if you do not provide us with more information about what errors are shown to you. Also the statement install them in Windows makes me wonder. What exactly do you mean about that?

Kind regards,
