>From your query, what you probably want is to properly dual-boot your system
with linux when you have windows already installed. You just need to
understand basics of linux file system, root (/) , swap partition, /boot
partition and their significance, because that's the only stage you may need
help - hard drive partitioning stage.
Best suggestion is that there are numerous great step-by-step guides out
there for dual booting. Just type your query in a search engine and you'll
get your steps. Take a print out of the steps if you can.
Most distros have the same installation procedure.

Try this and instead of ubuntu you may apply it for Mandriva.
