Why is this urgent? Hint: That word makes some people simply move more slowly.....

Assuming you already have the installation CD, simply boot from the CD and follow the instructions.
If you don't have a CD yet, you might want to consider getting a more current version.

I am a newbie too.

You could have tried Wubi. Its very simple.

Download Wubi in to one of your partitions (really not necessary that they should be empty! You could have windows stuff also in it!). And follow the instructions very simple.
