Installing Linux on a notebook

I would like to install Linux on my notebook computer.  I have a 4 Gb harddisk.  Is it possible to have Windows 98 and Linux installed on the same hard disk?  Does this cause any problems?  Would it be a matter of simply creating a second partition and installing Linux on that?

Thanks very much.
