I am completely new to Linux, i havent actualy installed it yet, im not really sure what to do, i have downloaded all 3 disks and burnt them onto disks, and i will now create another partition for Linux, but im not sure what to do when ive installed linux, how will i boot between Linux and Windows? What will i need?

A program called grub or lilo will be installed. You master boot record will load this program instead of windows. you will then be able to select between windows and linux.

If you have already partitioned your drive it will be a breeze
