Help in installing BT4 and Windows 7

Hi umm, as you all know im pretty new here, so i came across BT4 last few weeks ago, and i tried it in vmware and was tempted to know more, so now i wanna try to install it and dual boot. Here's my problem, when installing the i get 2 options instead of 3 options in the partioner, so i couldnt install BT4 without erasing my W7, so any help or guide or video would be helpful, im very new to linux but im really hoping to learn from u guys, also if i do successfully install it, how do i install drivers for my wireless card, ohh and my laptop is a Acer Aspire 4736G, my wireless card is a intel(R) WiFi Link 5100AGN...

yea i tried using the cd, it boots fine and all, its just that when installing when im supposed to have 3 options in the partioner, but i got 2, which either i use guided where i format the whole disk, or manually which i have no idea how to use it yet. Also about the wireless, i tried typing the "/etc/netwrking/.. " and in the end it showed something like a ping, finally it showed error at the end, is there any guide, video or link, where i can read or watch. btw thanks for replying, ^^ i will try it again tonite...
