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.

Yes you can have linux and windows 98 on the same system if this your first time I will get redhat 5.1 from www.cheapbytes.com they version cost you 1.99 www.linux.org will be good website for finding all info you need on seting up linux on notebook. On cd you will find utilty that will make free partition for linux it is very easy to use it will let you choose how much space you want for linux .
