Thank You,

First you will need to resize your windows partition.  Probably, this will mean removing it and reinstalling it onto a smaller partition.  Run fdisk from a dos boot disk to remove and create a partition.  Then, after installing dos and 3.1, boot to the linux setup.  It will recognize the remaining free space.  Then you can create you root and swap partitions as indicated be swwelsh above.  Install LILO in the Master Boot Record when prompted.  Then when you boot the machine after installation, you will get a LILO: prompt.  If you type nothing, it will boot to Linux.  If you type DOS it will boot to windows.

You will need to make 2 partitions for linux, one for the OS and one for the swap file. You can dual boot with linux once you have it set up. What are the specifications of your machine - hard drive, memory, etc?
