phlak and windows

I'm almost completely new to linux. and here's the situation. I was using windows xp and VMware (phlak on the virtual machine) and I really like it. however I was wondering how I could do a dual boot, like have linux and windows in their own partitions coexisting peacefully. I've never done anything like that before and wouldnt even know where to start.
I'm using a dell inspiron 1000 with an intel centrino 2.2ghz processor, a dell truemobile wireless card and an i/o magic dvd+-rw.
I want to keep xp because i need it to run programs like ms word and some pc games I have (incidentally are PC games compatible with linux or do they sell linux games seperately?). so any help would be greatly appreciated.
