Huh?  I'm really not sure what you're asking.

If you're trying to learn linux, I would suggest you try a Live CD first - live CDs boot from the CD and run entirely off the CD - nothing to install.  When you want to go back to Windows, you just restart the computer.  One of the most popular live CDs is Knoppix, www.knoppix.net, but there are several others, including Suse and Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is a good distribution, in my opinion. User-friendly but capable, (www.ubuntu.com). The normal install process will offer to resize your windows partition if there is no unallocated space on the HD.
